George Miller Bridge was constructed in 1879 and is a covered Smith through truss. It was renovated in the 1990s by an Amish construction company. This bridge spans Eagle Creek and is 162 feet long, almost 16 feet wide, and has a vertical clearance of just over 11 feet. It is open to vehicular traffic.

It was named for a WWI veteran named George Henry Miller who was born around 1900, and whose father, Jacob had been the landowner until his death. The name of the road and the name of the bridge are both named after the same George Miller. His brother, Walter, died in the war, and the American Legion Post in nearby Russellville bears his name.
