Big Bar - Mokelumne River, Amador County

You can see part of the old bridge still there if you look around the area. A mile from Butte City is Big Bar Bridge, wrote the traveler in 1857, the Weekly Ledger, owned by Messrs, Soher and Goodwin.

It is a fine looking, safe structure, and was built in connection with the new road, greatly facilitating travel from Jackson to Mokelumne Hill.

If you are traveling around Amador County, take some time to drop by Big Bar Bridge for some historic site seeing.

More on the story of Big Bar Bridge can be seen in" Logan's Alley" by Larry Cenotto.
