View The Patent Related To This Bridge Design

This is the only surviving example in the country of an unusual patented Phoenix column bowstring truss bridge. This bridge is actually a late example of a bowstring truss bridge since by the 1880s they were not commonly built. It nevertheless is an extremely significant bridge as a sole surviving example of an unusual patented bridge design. Its use of the rare Phoenix columns in its design adds greatly the bridge's significance as well. The bridge was relocated here from Canajoharie, New York in 1975. The bridge is preserved here for pedestrian use.
