Historic Visits Historic Visits at Three Bridges County Park
This park was once the site of a busy rock quarry and the ruins of the power of an old river power mill are still visible in the park.  This old quarry furnished most of the rock used to build the Marshall County courthouse and jail.  When the quarry was in operation there was a dam on the river, which flooded most of the area north of the present park. 

Last but not least you will find the oldest originally placed wagon bridge in Marshall County.  Built in 1885 the Quarry Bridge was constructed out of wrought and cast iron and cost Marshall County $3,295.  In May of 1998 the Quarry Bridge was placed on National Register of Historic Places.
