Bridge Documentation

This truss bridge has been bypassed by a modern bridge but with conversion to a pedestrian bridge remains in use in its original location. The bridge is a good example of a later design of Pratt truss sold by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company which is noted for its use of an a-frame portal bracing, a design which the company did not start to use until around the time this bridge was built.

Text From Bridge Interpretive Plaque

Located on an early Waxahachie Creek fording site that served pioneer settlers of the area, this truss bridge was built in 1889. It was manufactured by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio, and was one of thirteen approved by Ellis County commissioners from 1888 to 1890. The span provided an extension for Rogers Street, a road named for Emory Rogers, donor of the Waxahachie townsite. As part of an important early North-South commercial route, the Rogers Street Bridge was vital to the growth and development of the city.
