Historic Bridges

A website for just about anything. That’s the way it is in today’s world. If you love historic bridges you might want to check this website, Historic Bridges of the United States. The website states, “This is a database of 32,527 historic bridges in the United States of America, past and present.”

The pictures for some of the bridges are beautiful, but many more bridges are listed than have images. The site has instructions for providing pictures of bridges. The “News” section is interesting. Links on the right hand side of the website allow you to check by state, type of bridge, condition, and other categories including those on the Nation Register of Historic Places.

Of course I had to check Madison County, Iowa because of the Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood movie, The Bridges of Madison County. Coincidentally, the movie is on a cable channel as I type this. I just checked on the date of this movie at imdb.com and found that it is a 1995 movie. That’s 14 years ago. My does time fly.

You might be able to find details and a picture of a bridge that was in the town where great granny lived.
