Summary

Significance: The bridge is an example of "Morrison's Patent Wrought Iron Arch Truss Bridge," based on a patent granted David H. Morrison in 1867. Unique among bowstring arches, this design used vertically-oriented I-beam flanges to form the bow. Morrison, founder of the Columbia Bridge Works of Dayton, Ohio, was one of the most important bridge engineers and manufacturers in 19th century Ohio.
