Dr. A. W. Bridge was one of Eatonville’s first doctors. He created some innovative programs and you may hear his name still today. He is the “Bridge” in the “Mary Bridge Children’s Hostipal” in Tacoma. When he passed he donated dollars to the hospital in his mother’s name — Mary Bridge.
Pictured here is a nurse, Mary Bridge and A. W. Bridge sitting in front of the Eatonville Lumberman’s Hospital, which was across from the high school — and it today a residence.
