Significance: The bride was dedicated to To-Moot-Tsoo (Chief Timothy), a Nez Perce Indian (1800-1891) who was friendly with early settlers and was credited with saving the lives of Colonel Edward J. Steptoe's troops in 1858 after their defeat in the Battle of Tohotonimme, near Rosalia. It is a two-span, reinforced-concrete similar in design to the "rainbow arch" popularized by James Marsh in the midwest in the 1910s and 1920s. The bridge has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
