— Historic Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin —

    1871-72 found the iron horse arriving in Grand Rapids & Centrailia. The railroad bridge replaced log, river rafting & its loss of life on the dangerous river rapids. A modern iron bridge was built to withstand the early, spring thaws. Long, tiring stagecoach & wagonrides became a thing of the past.
