Notes

Significance: The Shaw Farm Bridge is an excellent example of a steel, rigid-connected, Pratt through truss designed by the Wisconsin State Highway Commission. Built in 1923, it is one of only fourteen remaining examples built during the early period (1911-1925) of standardized design in Wisconsin. In its design and material, the Shaw Farm Bridge exemplifies a once common bridge type. As one of the few remaining structures of this type, the bridge has been declared eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
