Mill Street Bridge, Scandanavia 

Written by Lola Bennett, Wisconsin Historic Bridge Recording Project, 1987

The Mill Bridge is the village's main thoroughfare across the Little Wolf River. Its construction in 1907 was part of a general economic boom in the village. The Mill Bridge is an excellent example of Waupaca County fieldstone bridges, which consist of small, uniformly oval stones, in contrast to large uneven granite boulders found in other masonry bridges of other counties in the State.
