In 1914, the Caddo Lake Drawbridge replaced a ferry that transported people across Caddo Lake at Mooringsport.
The historic Caddo Lake drawbridge will turn 100 years old in 2014. The vertical lift bridge in Mooringsport, La., was built under the authority of the Caddo Parish Police Jury during the town’s oil boom era. Ahead of World War II, it was used in the Louisiana Maneuvers to mimic a bridge under siege. When the state decided to replace the drawbridge in the late '80s, Mooringsport resident Darren Guin began an earnest quest to save it.
