description

Summary

Significance: The Wolf Point Bridge is the finest remaining example of a Pennsylvania through truss bridge in Montana. Completed in 1930, the four-span bridge is the most massive in the state and retains the longest through truss span in Montana. The bridge, moreover, was the result of many years lobbying by northeast Montana boosters and businessmen. When completed, it provided access to the Great Northern Railway station at Wolf Point for those farmers and ranchers who were relatively isolated on the south side of the Missoui River. The bridge has not been altered and retains its integrity of design, location and setting.
