Description 

A nine-panel pin connected Pennsylvania through truss with a one-lane wooden deck built in 1911 by the Stupp Bros. Bridge & Iron Co.

In the early county records, this is referred to as the 'Lone Rock' Bridge. USACE Memphis District Photos of the bridge from 1943 refer to it as the Holladay Landing Bridge.

On August 25, 1910 the Wayne County Court 'In the matter of building a steel bridge across St. Francis River near Lone Rock' ordered the county highway engineer to survey the proposed bridge location and make an estimate for the cost of building a steel bridge there.

It was built by the Stupp Bros. Bridge & Iron Co. of St. Louis for Wayne County in 1911, in conjunction with the St Francis River bridge at Wappapello. The contract for that pair of bridges was awarded by the County Court in Nov. 1910 for a sum of $10,190

Bridges at Wappapello Lake were removed in 1947 following a settlement between the USACE and Wayne County for the value of county roads and bridges that were affected by Wappapello Lake.
