Summary

Significance: The Tiffany Stone Bridge is the oldest remaining stone arch bridge in the State of Wisconsin. It is an excellent representative example of the stonework done by the Chicago & North Western Railway and is, by far, the most impressive stone arch railroad bridge in the State. The bridge was designed by Van Mienan, the chief engineer for the railroad company, who modeled it after a stone arch bridge in Compiegne, France.
