Summary

Significance: By the 1880s, the pin-connected Pratt through truss was almost the exclusive structural type for medium-span roadway crossings in Iowa. The Pine Mill Bridge is distinguished among these by its early date and is a classic example of work by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company. It stands next to a maintained grist mill, and is the only remaining site in Iowa in which the relationship of mill and bridge is preserved.
