Bridge Documentation

One of only a few Whipple truss bridges in all of Texas, this bridge has the distinctive design details of a bridge built by the King Bridge Company. The bridge retains good historic integrity including built-up floorbeams. Local media reported this bridge was built ca. 1917. The design of this bridge is older, from the late 1800s (most likely the 1880s) so the bridge either was relocated here in 1917, or the date is totally wrong. Very little is known about the bridge. The abutments are a combination of stone and concrete, and the stone may be from a previous bridge at this location if indeed this bridge was moved here in 1917. For many years, the notable Burnett family lived on the east side of the bridge in which the park is named after. Tom Lloyd Burnett, the founding father of Iowa Park, was the son of Samuel Burk Burnett.
