Spanning what looks like a large gravel pit is the Waynesville steel bridge over Roubidoux Creek, constructed in 1911. This was the sixth bridge to be constructed in Pulaski County. Remnants of the pilings can be seen at the west end of North Street and in the city’s RV park. It was replaced in 1923 by the Highway 14 concrete arch bridge, which three years later became Route 66, and is still being used. The steel bridge was dismantled and moved to Lundstrum Ford on the Gasconade at Highway T. A truck went through the wooden floor in 1959 and it was razed in the summer of 1961.
I have a c.1920 real photo postcard of the iron bridge that this bridge replaced. If you would like a 600 dpi JPEG of it, please let me know.
p.s., I have other great scans of photo postcards of other Pulaski County bridges if you are interested.
The bridge is in the middle of the old part of town. If you travel West on Bus 66 past the county jail you can't miss it.
I lived 4 miles west of Waynesville from about Apr 1934 to May 1936. When we, my sisters along with Nina & Stanley Bowling had a nickle or dime we would walk to Waynesville and spend it on candy.At the most this would be a couple of times a year. We carried our lunch in a 1/2 gal Karo Syrup pail and drinking water in another one. At noon we would go down to the Roubidoux by the bridge and eat. After we finished our lunch we would walk back home. Our post office address at the time was Buckhorn. I lived about 1 mile east of Buckhorn and the Bowlings were about 1/2 mile east.
Its at the west end of town.
In layman's terms, just where is this bridge located? Is it in the town of Waynesville? I don't remember seeing this bridge.
