Significance: The Minnesota Veterans' Home Steel Bridge was the only structure connecting this peninsula to Minnehaha Park. This Steel Bridge is one of the most significant structures on the site today because of its usages. It has been recently closed to motorists, but is still open to pedestrians. It's linked to the gradual development of reinforced concrete bridges in Minneapolis. It was built in 1908.
