    Nevada, Iowa may be a small town, but it is full of hidden gems and interesting attractions. One of the must-see places to visit in Nevada is the Lincoln Highway Bridge.

    The Lincoln Highway Bridge is a historic bridge that spans the South Skunk River in Nevada. Built in 1914, the bridge was originally part of the Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental highway in the United States. The highway was created in 1913 and ran from New York City to San Francisco, passing through 13 states and covering over 3,000 miles.

    The bridge itself is a beautiful example of early 20th-century bridge engineering. It features a unique steel arch design, with a total length of 161 feet and a height of 27 feet. While the bridge is no longer used for vehicular traffic, it is still open to pedestrians and offers stunning views of the river and surrounding countryside.

    In addition to the bridge itself, visitors to the area can also enjoy the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway, a scenic driving route that follows the path of the historic Lincoln Highway. The byway passes through Nevada and a number of other small Iowa towns, offering a glimpse into the history and culture of the area.

    Another interesting attraction in Nevada is the Story County Historical Museum. Located in downtown Nevada, the museum offers exhibits and displays that showcase the history of Story County and the surrounding area. Highlights of the museum include a collection of antique tractors and farm equipment, as well as a restored 1860s-era log cabin.

    Overall, Nevada, Iowa may be small, but it is full of fascinating history and beautiful scenery. Whether you're interested in exploring the Lincoln Highway Bridge, learning about local history at the Story County Historical Museum, or simply enjoying a scenic drive through the area, there's something for everyone to discover in Nevada.
