description

Summary

Significance: The Fall River Bridge is extremely significant as the only known example of a timber Howe pony truss remaining in Idaho. It represents, in fact, one of the few survivals of this bridge type in the Northwest region. The striking design of the bridge - a solidly-built superstructure set off by massive stone masonry piers, contributes to its unique character.
