Summary

Significance: Pin-connected Pratt trusses were used for almost all of Iowa's wagon trusses in the late 19th century. The Grand River Bridge is distinguished among the surviving Pratts by its well-preserved condition and odd approach span. With an inclined end post on one end and an upright post on the other, this unique span is a pony truss/truss leg hybrid, the only one of its kind in Iowa and exceedingly rare elsewhere.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: N221
Survey number: HAER IA-49
Building/structure dates: 1882
