Canal Dover with the Zoarville Station Bridge

This drawing from 1899 depicts Canal Dover (now Dover) at the time the Zoarville Station Bridge was still part of the Factory Street (now Tuscarawas Street) bridge. At that time, it was one of three spans crossing the Tuscarawas River (see image below for close-up).  The Zoarville Station Bridge is the lower bridge). The entire bridge was removed in 1905 and one of the spans was moved to Zoarville Station. The fate of the other two spans is unknown.
