Kansas Off The Beaten Path: 40 reviews and 97 photos


Stone has always been available in huge quantities in Chase County. So when it came time to build a bridge across the Cottonwood River south of Clements, it was natural to construct it of that commodity. This 127 foot long double arch bridge (no longer open to auto traffic) was built it 1886 or 1888, depending on your source of information, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

It is located just south of the unincorporated village (or ghost town) of Clements, easily accessed from US Hwy 50.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
