Significance: Fryer’s Ford Bridge is the oldest in-service bridge—and the second-oldest bridge of any type—in the State of Arkansas. It is an intact example of a pin-connected Pratt through truss, a type that is growing increasingly rare. The Wrought Iron Bridge Company, a nationally significant nineteenth-century bridge firm, fabricated the bridge in 1890, and it was erected in 1891.
