Old Stone Bridge

The stone bridge was located just above the current upper dam at Barton Springs. Built around 1894, this rock bridge was said to have been the longest single arch bridge ever built.

This stone abutment is all that remains of a beautiful stone arch bridge that spanned Barton Creek.
