Stone Arch Bridge

The Stone Arch Bridge was built downstream from St. Anthony Falls in the late 19th century by local railroad baron, James J. Hill (whose mansion still stands on Summit Avenue in St. Paul). On a recent spring day, strollers and bikers were out traversing the river between St. Anthony Main on the east side and the recently developed Mill Ruins Park on the west side. This is the view from the mound at Gold Medal Park looking across to some of the old mill buildings and new condos in the trendy part of the Marcy Holmes neighborhood.
