Inscription.  This crossing was on the historic Mormon Trail. Lands surrounding the crossing were a welcome rest stop for weary pioneers. John Myers ferried emigrants across the Bear River and provided needed supplies from his store.
In 1858, the Myers Ranch, located where the bridge cross the Bear River on the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway, was designated the Bear River Station on the Overland Stage Route. Mail and freight were left at the ranch. This ranch became a changing station for the Pony Express in 1861.
