When Act 126 of 1875 transferred the responsibility of building bridges to the county courts, the state was flooded with bridge construction salesmen. Bridges were built of various materials, but from 1914 to 1935, many concrete bridges were constructed over Arkansas waterways. One of these companies, the Luten Bridge Company of Nashville, Tennessee, constructed this concrete bridge spanning the White River at Elkins (Washington County) in 1921. The bridge still stands as of 2007.
