Wood, Concrete, Stone, and Steel: Minnesota's Historic Bridges

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

From timber bridges to crossings of steel, Minnesota has lost many of its historic bridges. Thankfully however, the state continues to host a number of historic crossings. Indeed, some of these bridges, such as the Aerial Lift Bridge in Duluth and the vertical lift bridge in Stillwater, are defining symbols of their communities. Learn about the iconic and widely diverse bridges that have decorated the landscape of the North Star State, some still standing and others long ago removed, from author and historian Denis P. Gardner. He is the author of Minnesota Treasures: Stories Behind the State’s Historic Places and Wood, Concrete, Stone, and Steel: Minnesota’s Historic Bridges. Desserts will be served after the presentation.
