Notes
Survey number HAER MN-87
Significance: Bridge No. 3585, a steel deck truss bridge, was constructed in 1925 by the Illinois Steel Bridge Company to meet the needs of the developing tourist economy along the North Shore of Lake Superior. The bridge and the adjacent stone concourse built by the Civilian Conservation Corps illustrate the ascendance of the automobile in American life, the role of tourism in the development of northern Minnesota, and National Park Service policies and design standards for state parks.
