Decorah Community Contribution: Dunning’s Springs Stone Arch Bridge

Located in Decorah, Iowa is the beautiful Dunning’s Springs Park. Dunning’s Springs Park is home to one of Iowa’s 13 waterfalls. Of those 13 waterfalls, 3 are located in Decorah! This beautiful waterfall is spring fed and stands approximately 200 feet. Deco Products is proud to have contributed to the hand laid stone arch bridge at the base of the waterfall that is similar to the one that stood in its place 140 years prior. The master stone mason, Ted Wilson of Decorah, designed the bridge to utilize dry stonewalling technique that features no mortar between the joints. This design is historically reflective of the original bridge that crossed the base of the spring. Donations from Deco Products and the Chris and Rhonda Storlie family as well as funding from Decorah Parks and Recreation paid for the new bridge. 

When asked about the donation to the bridge, and the bridge’s significance for Decorah, Chris Storlie, Deco CEO, said, “Decorah has a fantastic parks and recreation system which benefits mostly everyone in the community as well as visitors. Deco and the Storlie family were excited to sponsor the stone bridge for everyone to enjoy.
