Mariposa Bridge

The Mariposa Bridge in southeastern Lincoln County is one of many historic resources that has stood the test of time. This historic bridge not only served as a link between the Mariposa Mill and the adjoining mill village, it served as a gathering place. The bridge maintains local significance as the best example of a Pratt thru-truss bridge in Lincoln County. This one-lane, pin-connected Pratt truss bridge was built in 1912 by the Owego Bridge Company of Owego, New York.
