Notes
Survey number HAER WY-71
Building/structure dates: 1920 initial construction
Significance: The Owl Creek Bridge is one of the more outstanding of the early county system vehicular trusses in Wyoming. Although several long span, pin connected Camelback and Parker trusses had been built in the State during the first decades of this century, their attenuated long span configurations have made them targets for country bridge replacement programs. The Owl Creek Bridge is one of only two pin connected Camelback through trusses left. It is an important early remnant.
