Clements Stone Arch Bridge


Here are some more photos from our May road trip to the Kansas Flint Hills. This time I wanted to share with you some photos we took at the Clements Stone Arch Bridge site. 


This is a place I'd heard about for years but had never visited. It's a gorgeous stone bridge and easy to find, just off Highway US 50, 1/2 mile south of Clements. 


Built from locally quarried stone, the Clements Bridge over the Cottonwood River has double 28' arches. 


The bridge is no longer passable, but you are welcome to walk over it. It was built in 1888 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
