The 434-foot bridge, built in 1875 by Joseph J. Daniels of Rockville, was closed to traffic in 1972 but remains open to pedestrians and bicyclists today. The Burr truss design bridge took nine months to build and cost $18,142. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the bridge was renovated in 2011.

The 2020 event was not held because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
