Baring Cross Bridge
The Baring Cross Bridge was completed in 1873.
The St. Louis, Iron Mountain, and Southern Railway ran from St. Louis, Missouri, through Little Rock, and down to Texarkana, Arkansas. The railway was created by an act of the legislature of the State of Missouri on March 3, 1851. Groundbreaking on the railway took place in October 1853. The line's first locomotive to reach North Little Rock arrived on February 7, 1873. On December 21, 1873, the railway company completed the Baring Cross Bridge across the Arkansas River.
The line became part of the Missouri Pacific Railway on May 12, 1917.
