Hudson in St. Croix County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Hudson Toll Bridge
In 1936, Dr. Boyd T. Williams donated the lighted arch structure at the entrance to the Toll Bridge. The original cost was $1500. The arch was lighted until the Toll Bridge was abandoned in 1951, after a new bridge was built further south.
Through community efforts, the unique "Arch over the Old Toll Bridge" was relit on July 27, 1995, to serve as a unique historical welcome to the many visitors to Hudson.
