Summary of Historic Significance
Bridge No. 1482 is a steel, single-span, king-post pony truss bridge. It is located in a rural setting in Schoneman County Park, just east of U.S. Highway 75. The bridge, originally erected over the Rock River on a rural road between Luverne Township and Clinton Township, was moved to its present location in 1990. Bridge No. 1482 provides a fine example of that style's distinctive A-shaped truss configuration. It retains excellent integrity of design, materials, workmanship, feeling and association.
