Notes
  • Dismantled 1931 in preparation for inundation that created Lake Of The Ozarks.
  • Michael Gillespie writes: "The supporting cables were cut and the tower was allowed to fall into the Osage River. The entire flood plain was being inundated by the waters of the newly created Lake of the Ozarks. During World War 2, the cables and tower were raised and sold for scrap. The shoreline of today's Lake of the Ozarks is just at the base of the bridge abutment. The toll house, seen in the photo just to the left of the bridge, is long gone, and everything below that has been underwater for 77 years. I have created a map of the road system at that location. You can view it at www.LakeHistory.info."
