Little Butte Creek Pedestrian Bridge
Main Street and Royal Avenue
Eagle Point
Built 1922
Moved 1987

The Little Butte Creek Pedestrian Bridge, built in 1922, originally spanned Antelope Creek ten miles southeast of Eagle Point. While still in its original location, it was listed as National Register #79002071 in 1979.

In August 1987, the bridge was loaded onto a makeshift trailer and hauled to Eagle Point by volunteers. When the bridge was rebuilt at the new site, arched openings were cut into each side so school children could be watched as they crossed the span. This alteration caused the bridge to be removed from the National Register of Historic Places.

Since then, the bridge has been restored in a fashion that represents the original design. Now only ribbon openings appear under the eves.
