The Wallace Bridge, also known as the Nimrod Bridge, is a historic bridge in rural Perry County, Arkansas. It is located southeast of the hamlet of Nimrod, carrying County Road 18 (Wallace Bridge Road) across the Fourche La Fave River. It is a single-span camelback through truss structure, set on concrete abutments. The bridge has a truss length of 180 feet (55 m) and a roadway width of 15 feet (4.6 m) (one lane). The bridge was built in 1908, its trusses constructed by the Southwestern Bridge Company. At the time of its listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008, it was one of three surviving camelback truss bridges in the state.[1][2]
