The Crum Road Bridge is a historic bridge near Walkersville, Frederick County, Maryland, United States. It spans Israel Creek southeast of Walkersville. The bridge is an iron bowstring pony truss bridge that is 62 feet (19 m) in length and 15.8 feet (4.8 m) in width. It was built about 1875, probably by the King Iron Bridge Company of Cleveland, Ohio.
The Crum Road Bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. The bridge was removed from its original location on Crum Road over Israel Creek and replaced by a new wide span concrete bridge in 1995. The bridge was relocated to the Heritage Farm Park, located several miles west off of Devilbiss Bridge Road for possible future use as a pedestrian bridge.
The bridge was subsequently removed from the property in 2004 and its location is currently unknown.
