Drowning Bear Creek Bridge
Posted April 12, 2009, by Connie Key (papakey [at] windstream [dot] net)

At one time there was a historic marker at Drowning Bear Creek that made mention of the landowner John Wesley Bowie. Does anyone know what happened to the marker? We would like to have a copy of the text from the marker.

We will appreciate any information.
