Notes
Survey number HAER IL-119
Significance: The White's Ferry of Buckeye Bridge is a three span, steel structure with a pin-connected, Parker Through truss as the main span. A representative example of early development of steel truss bridge construction in Illinois, the White's Ferry Bridge is one of only six pin-connected highway bridges of this truss type in the state. Its listing on the National Register of Historic Places is part of a thematic historic district that demonstrates truss bridge development within the scenic Spoon River Valley, a relatively concentrated and easily definable rural area.
