    Grimms Bridge

    The Grimms Bridge is a historic Whipple through truss over Little Beaver Creek in Columbiana County, Ohio.


    The one-lane Grimms Bridge was constructed in 1884 by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio over Beaver Creek. 2

    The Porterfield-Binger construction Company was the lone bidder of a $9,991 rehabilitation project for Grimms Bridge on June 20, 1955. 2 Their bid was just $4 above the county engineer’s estimate. The crossing was renovated again in 1997 when it was sandblasted and painted, and new stringers and deck were installed.
