Description 

The McClure Bridge is one of only two remaining timber Pratt Truss Bridges in Washington. Although first framed in timber, (the Pratt Truss Bridge was patented in 1844), iron and steel later prevailed as primary building materials. The McClure Bridge is historically important locally because of its role in social, agricultural, and economic development. The bridge was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. -- Historic American Engineering Record (HAER WA-25)
