Cremated Remains Found In Yellowstone Trail Bridge

Recommended Posts

Cremated Remains Found in Yellowstone Trail bridge

 

There used to be a myth in the little town of Fall City which is just a few miles downstream from the beautiful Snoqualmie Falls. For over 60 years there was a rumor that there were two urns placed inside the old concrete bridge during construction in 1916. When the old bridge was being torn down in 1980, the two urns were discovered by a construction worker. This proved that the myth was in fact a true story.

 

The Fall City Historical Society has published an excellent article on the bridges of Fall City. The 1980 story about the discovery of the two urns and how they came to be inside of the concrete bridge are on the last page.

That's kinda cool. Definitely a safe place for them (well, until it was torn down, that is).
