Kruse Family Bridge

The Kruse family had a bridge in the early 1900s that spanned the Nisuqally. It was located near La Grande and was operational until around 1930. The Kruse family was one of the first to settle in the Alder area and I wish there were pictures of the building of this bridge.

There are a couple other shots of the bridge is you’d like to take a look.

I’m also happy to see that there were folks who misspelled words back then too.
