Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N345).
Building/structure dates: 1928 initial construction
Significance: Although John D. Rockefeller, Jr., had sought to have a relatively formal bridge constructed over the park motor road at Bubble Pond, his plans for the structure were rejected by the National Park Service. Despite the rejection, in a show of good will he paid for the alternate bridges designed by the National Park Service Landscape Engineering Division. Bubble Pond Bridge may be of solid masonry construction, making it unique among the carriage road bridges.
