description

Summary

Significance: Built during the winter of 1884-1885, the Trickum Road Bridge is one of the oldest surviving metal Pratt through-truss bridges in Missouri. In addition to its architectural significance, the Trickum Road Bridge is important because its builder was the King Bridge Company of Cleveland, Ohio. Few examples of this historic fabricator's work remain in Missouri. The State Historic Preservation Officer has found the Trickum Road Bridge potentially eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
