  Looking towards Bentonsport across the bridge
by mtncorg

Built in 1882, this one-lane iron bridge is the oldest standing truss bridge crossing the Des Moines River. It served vehicular traffic until a newer bridge was completed a few years ago a short distance upstream. Today, the bridge – renovated in the mid 1990’s - serves the occasional pedestrian who wants to wander out and ponder over the rustling waters below.
