Abandoned late 1800’s truss bridge over Wolf Creek in Bland County, Virginia.

This bridge is clearly a former railroad bridge and may have been moved to this location to serve the New River, Holston, and Western Railroad. In 1919, the line was acquired by the Norfolk and Western Railroad. The rail service was discontinued in 1946 this section became a highway right-of-way.
