Minos West Ford Bridge
Minos West Ford Bridge, Butler County, Kansas

Stone arch bridges have been built for hundreds upon hundreds of years, and are still being built in some parts of the world. The beautiful and intriguing architecture of these bridges is well known and is still viewed with awe today. There are many stone arch bridges in the world, most of which still faithfully carry the road — just as they have done for centuries.

While the various counties in Kansas are considering the bridge problem, I wish to present a few facts about a bridge that is older than any of the colonial furniture now so popular. The arch bridge for beauty has never been equaled. An arch bridge adds beauty to any landscape. The durability and strength of the arch bridge is never questioned. Many such bridges in Europe built a thousand years ago are still as good as when built and never need repairs.
