Hennepin Avenue Bridge

In Wikipedia you find a tidbit about the Henepin Avenue Bridge including a picture of the bridge ten years after it was built.

The year the bridge was completed was 1855, it was originally a toll bridge and was one of the first, if not the first bridge, to cross the Mississippi River. Later in the century railroad tracks were included with the bridge.

Another brief article about this bridge can be found Father Louis Hennepin Suspension Bridge on MNopedia.
