Tressle Bridge _ Dam

This picture from 1938 shows the wood stave channel under the trestle with riprap rock to stop the erosion of the railroad fill. In 1940’s this was a popular walk from uptown to view the welcome return of the lake.

A picture of water flowing from upper Prior Lake to lower Prior Lake. This was built so that the sides would not cave in and dam up the lake.
