Significance: At Vanderbilt Mansion, Frederick Vanderbilt created a country estate with a picturesque carriage drive system and bridges that both complemented and heightened the beauty of the natural landscape. One of a system of bridges constructed during the Vanderbilt period of ownership, the Dock Street Bridge represents Frederick Vanderbilt's approach to scenery. The rustic quality of the bridge was carefully designed so as to appear part of the surroundings, thus making it a part of the landscape.
