Cambridge State Aid Bridge Cambridge State Aid Bridge, pdf [FN00-098] Listed 1992/06/29

Established by the Nebraska State Legislature in 1911, the state aid bridge program was designed to assist the counties in construction of major river crossings. In February 1913 Furnas County first applied for state aid to build a bridge across the Republican River south of Cambridge. The bridge was constructed in 1914. Over its twenty-five-year duration, the state aid bridge program was responsible for some seventy-seven structures, seventeen of which were concrete arch spans. The Cambridge Bridge is distinguished among these as one of the two oldest remaining.

W. H. Faling House  W. H. Faling House, pdf [FN03-051] Listed 1999/11/22

Constructed in 1909, the Failing House is located in Cambridge. It is representative of the eclectic Neo-Classical style popular during the early part of the twentieth century. The house is architecturally significant and contributes to a time when the West was becoming more cultured, and manifesting its growth through a more elaborate physical building stock. The two-story house retains a high degree of historical integrity.
