|December 2013 (38.50840 Degrees, -122.35395 Degrees) Chiles Pope Valley Road Bridge|
Napa County Surveyor, O.H. Buckman also designed the Swartz Creek Bridge in 1912. Buckman served as a Napa County Surveyor from 1895 until about the time of World War I. The abundance of masonry arch bridges in Napa County is primarily due to his design efforts. This bridge was built by contractor A.C. Martini as were many other bridges in Napa County.
The reason this bridge wasn't selected as a historic place was probably because it was widened. The National Registry of Historic Places wants their bridges unaltered.
