Mountain Lake Dam and Bridge – Mountain Lake MN

Description

WPA funded the construction of a dam and bridge north of the town of Mountain Lake, Minnesota. The dam created what became Mountain Lake itself. The original bridge, with 1938 WPA plaque, is still in use, though now for pedestrians only.

Source notes

There is a new sign at the site, placed by the Minnesota Historical Society, that gives the details. The original WPA plaque still exists on the original bridge.

Project originally submitted by Lisa Brownell on May 3, 2014.
