Significance: This bridge holds the unofficial honor of being the first "iron" bridge to be built in Polk County. It is remarkable that although it is frail, by present standards, it has carried tremendous loads, far beyond its design capacity, for more than a century. Not many bridges have served for more than half a century in each of two locations. It was fabricated by the King Bridge and Manufacturing Company of Cleveland, Ohio.
