Charles Wm. Carpenter
1888 - 1928
In his younger days, "Bud" Carpenter carried the mail by horseback throughout Trinity County and parts of Humboldt County. He was also an expert packer for the Brizard Company in the days when that mode of transportation was universal in the area.
In memory of Charles Wm. Carpenter, and as a tribute to other law enforcement officers who have given their lives to the preservation of justice, this bridge is hereby dedicated.
