The Pine Creek Grist Mill near Muscatine, Iowa, dates from 1848 and has recently been restored to working order by local volunteers. The bridge was constructed after the mill, in 1877, and is an example of a pin-connected Pratt through truss design. The mill and bridge at Pine Creek are the only surviving pair of these types of structures in Iowa. Before you visit—or to visit virtually—check out the video that Iowa PBS made about the mill's restoration.
