the bridge was also huanted along with the town of blackwell.
I am so sorry to see that the Blackwell Bridge is gone.
One of my favorite photos is of my late Father, James Valle
on the old bridge when he was a young and very fit lead miner.
Its memory and His, will live on thanks to everyone who has preserved these images.

I lived in Jefferson county near Blackwell, untill
1951 when my parents moved to Utah. It is so sad to think
of the Blackwell bridge being gone. I have walked across
that bridge many many times. Sometimes I would ride my
mule to get groceries at Mr. Cole's store for my mom,
but no amount of coaxing would make my mule cross the
bridge. My husband and I thought of taking a trip back
this summer,but I don't suppose there is anyone living
there that I would know of after so many years.

I have heard stories that some of the steel for the bridge came from the 1904 World's Fair. Can anyone confirm??
