I refuse to call the current work restoration, as way to much of the original historic timbers are being replaced. From what I have seen so far the county would have been better off bypassing it with a new span or moving it to another location. Not sure how it can retain National Register status when most of the historic integrity is lost.
According to the "Whitewater Valley Explorer" of June-July 1996 the name of this bridge came from the family who lived on the hill overlooking the bridge.
