Summary

Significance: Black Canyon Small Bridge is thought to be a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)-era bridge built between 1933 and 1942. The bridge is one of the better examples of CCC work on the Gila National Forest. In addition, the bridge is associated with the NFSR 150/North Star Road corridor. This road was built in large part and used by the US military in the late 1800s and played a great role in the early development of what eventually became the Gila and Aldo Leopold Wildernesses in the twentieth century.
