A brief history of the Chicago Great Western route to Kansas City:


This small stone arch bridge crosses an unnamed creek near Melbourne, Iowa.
Built in approximately 1900, the stone arch is like several other in the area.
Today, this small arch carries a private driveway across the creek.
Overall, the bridge remains in good condition.

The author has ranked the bridge as being locally significant, due to the common design.
