Enachaya Creek Bridge
Posted February 6, 2019, by Carroll Messer (cj [dot] messer [at] att [dot] net)

1. Correct spelling is Emachaya Creek (USGS)

2. One of six Whipple cast and wrought iron arch truss bridges (50-foot span) was built here in 1859 for federal-sponsored Beale Wagon Road by A & P Roberts & Co. of Philadelphia, PA. All six bridges were destroyed during the Civil War.
