Old Revilee Creek Bridge


Revilee Creek Bridge

Photo contributed by Jamie Mott

BH Photo #219891


This is apparently the bridge that was just east of Magazine School on hwy 10 over Revilee Creek years ago. The designation of this being the Revilee Creek bridge was determined by the view of Red Johnson Hill and Mount Magazine in the background. The photo came from an Magazine Historic site and was contributed by Jamie Mott

Yes indeed the 'documentation' on the back of this photo does say Scott Creek. However talking to other people who were around then and having visited both the Scott and Revilee Creek crossings - Mt. Magazine and other background/landscape shown in this photo are only visible in 'this' configuration at Revilee Creek. If you view the background from Scott Creek looking east, Mt. Magazine is larger and directly in front of you. So much for 'documentation.'

Important Note: Back of the original photograph reads, "SCOTTS CREEK BRIDGE". The original photograph was not found at a "historical site" in Magazine. It is located at the City Hall in Magazine in a photo album. Bridge shown above built in 1907.

I would like to say a big thanks to D.S. McConnell originally from 'back home' for helping determine this was an Revilee Creek bridge. D.S. was able to recognize Mt. Magazine and other georgraphy in the background and that confirmed where bridge this was.
