Regarding Antelope Creek Bridge. Antelope Creek Bridge 202, erected around 1922, was originally listed in the National Register in 1979 and was located at Yankee Creek about 10 miles south of Eagle Point. The City of Eagle Point obtained the bridge in 1986, years after the bridge had closed to traffic, and moved it here to Little Butte Creek in 1987. The bridge became de-listed in 1988 when the City modified the bridge by cutting out window panes on the sides of the bridge for better visibility and lighting. Volunteers have worked hard to restore the bridge back to its original look, thus, the bridge was put back on the National List in 2012 where it remains today.
