The Manchester Street Bridge was relocated to this setting in the late 1980s after its useful life as a road bridge reached an end. A tip o' the hat to Brenda at the Baraboo Visitor's Center for her guidance that led me to this location. This is the last camelback truss extant in Wisconsin since the Kennan-Jump Bridge was demolished in 1989. Bravo to the folks of Baraboo who had the vision to save this important piece of history!
The Manchester Street Bridge was documented by the Historic American Engineering Record before it was replaced/relocated.
