The story behind the name

Bridge Street

On February 25, 1919, executive order No. 3041 ,was signed by President Woodrow Wilson and withdrew land from the Challis National Forest to reserve the property for a town site.  Around July of 1921 the Federal Government accepted the surveyed plot of the "Stanley Townsite" now known as Stanley Government Townsite (Lower Stanley). Lower Stanley was then to be sold to the public, whoever was the highest bidder. At the time the survey was taking place a wood bridge already existed across the Salmon River to William Woolley's Ranch.  So on the plot they named the street "Bridge Street".  

In 1937 William Woolley purchased two lots of "Stanley Townsite" one for $35.00 and the other for $40.00.  Later, his son Dan inherited the property and the ranch. Dan also purchased a house on four lots on the adjacent side of the Bridge Street.  In 1980 he started vacation proceedings on Bridge Street, but was killed later that year.  In 1994 Dan's son Brett re-started the vacation proceedings.  After a few years of obstacles the street was finally vacated and Brett was able to work toward building what you see today.  In 2002 Brett built the restaurant and purchased the original townsite lots from the family.  Brett, his mother and two brothers still own the ranch across the river, Woolley Ranch.

ABOUT THE BRIDGE

The original bridge across the Salmon River washed out in the 70's.  From that time of the washout until 1996 the only way across was to wade across or use the cable car.  After seven years of paperwork to get the necessary permits to replace the bridge that washed out, in 1994, Brett, his brother Dan and friends started to rebuild the Bridge.  In the summer of 1995 the concrete was poured, and the beams were placed. Finally in the summer of 1996 the decking was placed and the bridge was ready for use.  You'll notice there's no railing on the bridge, but don't worry it's twelve feet wide and rated to hold 60,000 pounds.  The old wood bridge didn't have railing either, but that's not the real reason why there's no railing.  The family got tired of the bridge taking up all of Brett's summers.
