85-1-ClementsStoneArchBridge

Clements Stone Arch Bridge Clements, Kansas Chase County: From Kansas travel website-Clements Stone Arch Bridge is tucked away in the woods at the edge of a field south of Clements, Kansas. The lovely double arch bridge is a little too tucked away, it's difficult getting a really good side view of the bridge in summer.

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

When was the Clements Bridge built? Although many sources list the Clements double arch stone bridge as being built in 1886 (and its centennial was celebrated in 1986), bids to do portions of the work were not accepted until late in 1887, and the bridge was not completed until sometime in 1888.

The Clements Bridge has been closed for a number of years. The first photo at the top of this page is taken from the bridge that replaced it. But you can still visit and walk across the Clements Bridge, about 1/2 mile south of Clements, Kansas, south of Highway US 50.

The Clements Stone Arch Bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, but there is no marker.

Wikipedia: The Clements Stone Arch Bridge is a historic bridge across the Cottonwood River .5 miles (0.80 km) southeast of Clements, Kansas. The bridge was built in 1886 by L. P. Santy and Company of Clements, who contracted with the Chase County commission to build it for $12,000. The 175-foot (53 m) bridge is composed of two stone arches rising 40 feet (12 m) above the river. The stone used for the bridge was quarried in Clements, as Santy and Co. also operated a quarry; the use of local materials allows the bridge to match its natural surroundings. The bridge's nomination to the National Register of Historic Places Described it as "a masterpiece of design and stone construction" and "one of the most handsome bridges in the state".
