Cool map: Concordia to Clyde from 1917 Atlas


Summited by Don Kerr. Kerr is acting organizer in Concordia and can be reached at 785-243-4472. Click map to enlarge. The stone bridge as listed near marker 31 can be reached by a short spur off present Hwy 9. To reach the bridge, go 5 miles east of Concordia then turn north into Rice at 200 Rd. and take the next turn east to the river.
According to Marci Penner’s Kansas Guidebook for Explorer’s, Ray Doyen restored this 1899 JB Tremblay single-arch bridge almost 100 years after it was built. For more information on the Concordia area, check out Marci’s book. It is the best single volume book on Kansas ever printed. For more information click on the Kansas Guidebook link.
