    The Springfield Bridge is a cast and wrought-iron bowstring-arch bridge built in 1871 based on a 1861 design by Zenas King and Peter M. Frees. It was manufactured by one of the King's companies, the King Iron Bridge Manufactory and Iron Works of Iola, Kansas. It is the oldest known surviving bridge in Arkansas.
