Sarvis Fork Bridge
  Built in 1889 using the Long Truss system by George W. Staats for $64 over the John Carnahan Fork west of Ripley on a branch of Big Mill Creek. Abandoned in 1924 during construction of US Rte. 33 when an iron bridge was built, the Jackson County court contracted "to tear down the Carnahan Bridge below Ripley and rebuild same across the Left Fork of Big Sandy Creek, near the home of William Weekley" for $1050. In 1969, after a state road truck broke through the floor of the bridge, steel beams were added and a new floor was installed. The bridge is still in use.
