Minnesota Historical Society: Minnesota’s historic bridges

MINNESOTA HISTORICAL SOCIETY

There are currently 27 bridges online with text and photographs from the National Register of Historic Places nominations. The focus of the exhibit are the state’s masonry arch, truss and reinforced concrete arch bridges. Use the Bridges by Location or Bridges by Type links below to view the bridges. The Stillwater Bridge in Washington County, the Split Rock Bridge in Pipestone County, and the Robert Street Bridge in Ramsey County are excellent places to start.
