Description 

The Moore's Ford Bridge was listed on the NRHP in 1996. One might assume the bridge was extant at that time, however, it does not appear on the 1992 NBI list. There is nothing left of the bridge but stone abutments. 25th Avenue comes to an end, several yards from either abutment, at private property. No other trace of a road or the bridge exists.
