The Bridges of Denton County

Text by ,
Some three miles west of I-35, a 150-foot-long bridge—built in 1908 at a cost of $1,500—spans Clear Creek at Sam Bass Road near Duck Creek Cemetery.
Some of Denton Co.’s remaining iron bridges have been moved from their original sites and preserved in public places; others await decisions about their fate. Three are listed in the National Register. To view Mildred Hawk’s brochure (with a map) of the bridges, go to the Denton County Historical Commission Web site: Or write to the DCHC, 110 W.
