Pfeiffer Canyon (Gulch) Bridge Historical Documents
Don Harlan’s younger brother Stan, now 90, went to Sacramento at some point and found these historical documents he sent to me. Before it was named Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge (in 1968) it was called Pfeiffer Gulch, which Steve Harper reminded me also. In Monterey County Place Names, it is called Pfeiffer Gulch. It was previously called Burnt Bridge Creek according to Ester Pfeiffer Ewoldsen. (Monterey County Place Names, p. 392.) It will be interesting to see what the cost of replacement will be – at least 10 times as much, I venture.
