A Great Northern Bridge Completely Burned Up

I've edited this posting to use a more local paper, which ran a longer story. A few of you have pointed out that the description of the trestle better fits the one in Lynch Coulee, between Trinidad and Crater.

From the "Spokane Chronicle"

July 3, 1893

"Watson Creek" is actually Wilson Creek.

From "The Morning Call."

July 4, 1893
