~ CLEMENTS BRIDGE ~
South of the ghost town of Clements in beautiful Chase County, the Clements stone arch bridge was built in 1887 of native limestone. The two-span bridge with a main span of 57.1 feet and a length of 126.9 feet is now open only to pedestrians. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on Dec. 12, 1976. Clements is located west of Strong City just south of Highway 50.
Upon further searching for information, Chase county is where the famous Notre Dame coach Knute Rockne lost his life in a place crash in 1931. The plane crashed into a wheat field near Bazaar, Kansas. The Matfield Green travel plaza on the Kansas Turnpike, near Bazaar, contains a memorial to him.
