A Miller county bridge is now one of seven sites being nominated for the National Register of Historic Places

The Grand Auglaize Bridge or better known as “the swinging bridge” near the back end of Lake of the Ozarks was included in the final list being sent to the federal government.

The bridge built by famous Lake area bridge builder Joesph Dice in the 1920s, has been maintained by the county over the years.

While it remains a 3-ton weight limit, the county has not conducted any “major modifications” which has kept the historical integrity of the bridge intact.

You can find that bridge, along with a 2nd shorter version of the bridge, on Swinging Bridges road between A road and Hwy 42.
