Clinton Bridge and Iron Works was a significant company in Clinton, Iowa.

George Edwin Wilson (b. England, 1847-d. Iowa, 1926) purchased Clinton Bridge & Iron Works, of Clinton, Iowa, in 1892. According to a history "This company is one of the leading concerns of the state and is too well known to require lengthy description here. Under Mr. Wilson's able and judicious management it has maintained an envied position in the industrial world. Its business is constantly increasing."[1]

It designed and/or built numerous bridges, including many that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]

The Snider Bridge is the oldest trust bridge attributed to Clinton Bridge & Iron Works.[3]
