Christmas In Zumbro Falls Update

The City of Zumbro Falls is cancelling the 2020 Christmas Festival. The City relies on local Businesses, Volunteers, Crafters and others to plan a successful and enjoyable event. This year is different with the covid19 pandemic. It is very difficult to find people willing to participate during this time. Zumbro Falls wants everyone to stay safe and stay healthy. Hope to see everyone next year December 2021!

The Zumbro Parkway Bridge

The Zumbro Parkway Bridge, #3219, Preservation has been completed.

The project was started in April 2020 and completed in July 2020. In August 2014, the Minnesota Department of Transportation completed the Local Historic Bridge Report Executive Summary Bridge Number: 3219. Built in 1937, the bridge is located immediately south of Zumbro Falls; along County road 68 in a rural area of Wabasha County.

The Zumbro Parkway Bridge is significant as a representative example of a multi plate arch bridge featuring stone headwalls, wing walls, and railings. Due to the historic nature, any work on Bridge 3219 should proceed according to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties (Standards) [36 CFR part 67] and The Secretary’s Standards with Regard to Repair, Rehabilitation, and Replacement Situations, as adapted by the Virginia Transportation Research Council (Guidelines). To learn more about the bridge history and the Minnesota Department of Transportation Historic Bridge Report visit http://www.dot.state.mn.us/historicbridges/bridge/3219/bridge-report.pdf

Take a scenic drive to Zumbro Falls and visit the bridge location, we can now enjoy a piece of history for many more years to come.
