Notes
Survey number HAER CA-96
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N830; N84).
Building/structure dates: 1927 initial construction
Significance: The single-span Clark's Bridge exemplifies the so-called National Park Service "rustic style" of architecture. The third bridge on the site, the semi-elliptical arch utilizes reinforced concrete in its construction, but its granite arch and facing make it appear to be of rough stone construction.
