Notes
Survey number HAER IA-69
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N240).
Building/structure dates: 1878 initial construction
National Register Number: 98000493
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.
