In Kimmswick, MO, The Hubs and I came across this historic bridge – The Windsor Harbor Road Bridge.
This Keystone Bridge Company bridge started its life in the Carondelet neighborhood in 1874, making it the same age at the more iconic Eads Bridge. It originally crossed the River des Peres at Ivory Avenue. In 1928, it was replaced by a new bridge and the Windsor Harbor bridge was moved to Kimmwick, where, in 1930, it was put up in its current location.
This bridge is the oldest wrought iron span in Missouri, thereby garnering it the spot on the National Historic Register. It’s now only open to pedestrian and non-motorized traffic, making it the perfect place to include on an afternoon walk, as The Hubs and I did.
