Hennepin Avenue Bridge, 1865
Officially named “Father Louis Hennepin Bridge”, this was the first of four bridges at this location. It was built in 1855 and at that time was a toll bridge.

IIRC, the toll to cross this bridge was 5 cents walking; 10 cents if you had donkeys. (note the sign between the turrets) It was also the first suspension bridge that spanned the Mississippi in all the country.
