Bridges of Butler County, KS

Butler County, KS is the largest county in the State.  It sits on the western edge of the Flint Hills.  Here is a link to different tours for the area.  Please call ahead, as some of the restaurants have closed.

These bridges are best photographed from down below.  I always have jeans and boots on, but there were a few places I didn’t want to go thru as there was a lot of poison ivy!  Thankfully I didn’t see any snakes!  Wylie was in his “pouch” for most of these photos!

Bridge #1

Double Arch   Built in 1912  Arches 20′ and 30′


Bridge #2

Built 1897  25′ Arch


This one is my favorite!  I could have stayed here all day, beautiful rock ledge.

Bridge #3

Built in 1900   37′ Arch


Nice reflection of clouds in the water




Bridge #4

Built in 1899  36′ Arch


Bridge #5

Built 1899  36′ Arch  (I don’t think this one is going to last much longer)


Just down the road from Bridge #5 was this old school.

Lily Lake School  1885-1966  (strange place for a cow!)


Looking forward to continuing this tour of Bridges of Butler County!

      Thanks Jessica!! Our creek water isn’t as clear running as your creeks are! I didn’t want to wade in this water. We are needing some rain to recharge the creeks. Suppose to have a chance of strong storms later today.

        It’s a trade off, clear streams or black dirt. 🙂 Where my folks live, the Mighty Missouri is muddy, but the crop land thrives! Pretty rocky here. 🙂

        Those bridges have quite their own personality, don’t they? Can’t believe they were built in the 1800’s. So pretty with the arches.

        That school is impressive! Funny about the cow.
