Description 

Single 90 ft span Pratt Through Truss on display at Waterloo Lake Regional Park within the Dennison city limits. Near the earthen dam is an obviously relocated through-truss iron bridge with a plate stating: Kansas City Bridge and Iron Co. 1886. The bridge will be part of a hiking trail. The bridge is probably one that came from near Van Alstyne.
