Owner description: Considered the only bridge of its kind, this soaring structure is made of native granite and limestone measuring 2,100 feet in length across the mighty Mississippi.

We were in town during some bitter cold weather, but did manage to get ourselves out and about a bit. The walk across the bridge into the downtown area is beautiful - on a brisk winter day, under a deep blue sky, the city looked inviting! Folks were riding the zip line across the river, despite the biting wind & cold. Insane!

When we visit the area Stone Arch Bridge is always a sight I look forward to seeing. The view is amazing and the construction of the bridge is unexplainably beautiful year round.

We ventured to the stone arch bridge in late January. Blessed with unseasonably warm weather we were able to meader along the bridge - over and above it. Beautiful area, great architecture.

Built by James J Hill in late 19th Century, to move wheat from Red River Valley in Canada to the Mill City (Minneapolis), the bridge remains an architectural marvel -- remains the only stone bridge on the Mississippi River.
Made from Minnesota granite and limestone, the bridge might rival Roman aqueducts in longevity. Remarkably impervious to the mighty cascade of Saint Anthony Falls.
The trains don't run across the bridge anymore, but many people do -- even on a winter's day. There are always walkers on the bridge, and photographers -- due to the splendid view of the Falls.
Fortunately Stone Arch Bridge is very wide, and can accommodate a great multitude of runners, walkers -- and every sort of dog.
Wonderful place to go, when staying downtown Minneapolis...Only fifteen minute walk from skyway system.
If you feel like a morning walk or run, Stone Arch is the place to "get er' done."

Wonderful photo spot. Unique old ruins. Also visit nearby theaters and museums. Walk all the way across the bridge.
