Idaho Landmark Turns 120

To think this couldn’t been demolished!

Have you ever been to the historic Guffey Railroad Bridge at Celebration Park in Melba? It’s a big month for this Idaho landmark; celebrating 120 years!

According to KTVB, the bridge was constructed in 1897 by Carnegie Steel on behalf of the Boise, Nampa & Owyhee Railroad. The purpose of the bridge was for the transportation of “heavy loads of gold and silver ore from Silver City to Nampa.”

When it was no longer needed, it faced demolition in 1947, but the Idaho State Historical Society saved it, and it now stands as a historical landmark and gives you access between the south side of the Snake River in Owyhee County and the north side in Canyon County.

I’ve gotta check this think out!
