Significance: The Manchester Street Bridge is a Camelback (Pratt) through truss. It was erected in 1884 by the Milwaukee Bridge and Iron Works, a very prolific late nineteenth century firm that built bridges throughout the midwest. This bridge has been cited in Cultural Resource Management in Wisconsin, the state's manual for historic properties, as one of only two Camelback truss bridges remaining in Wisconsin. Of the two it is the only pre-1900 structure. It is significant, therefore, as the state's only wrought iron, pin connected example of this unique Pratt truss.
