Red Wing Area Seniors From timber bridges to crossings of steel, Minnesota has lost many of its historic bridges. Thankfully, however, the state continues to host a number of historic crossings. Indeed, some of these bridges, such as the Aerial lift Bridge in Duluth and the vertical lift bridge in Stillwater, are defining symbols of their communities. Learn about the iconic and widely diverse bridges that have decorated the landscape of the North Star State, some sill standing and others long ago removed, from author and historian Denis P. Gardner.

Denis P. Gardner is the National Register Historian at the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office St. Paul, where he reviews the eligibility of properties for the National Register of Historic Places. He is the author of Minnesota Treasurers: Stories Behind the State’s Historic Places and Wood, Concrete, Stone and Steel: Minnesota’s Historic Bridges (University Of Minnesota Press). His latest book is Our Minnesota State Capitol: From Groundbreaking Through Restoration (Minnesota Historical Society Press). Denis was here last month talking about the capitol restoration and we had numerous requests for him to return! HE IS COMING BACK!
