8. Sherman County History Tidbits: A Bridge: Collaboration and Connection, 1993
Bridging Barnum Creek in Moro City Park is the Sherman County Historical Society’s Regional Strategies-funded covered footbridge. This sturdy, handsome structure connects visitors in the park and on Highway 97 to the Museum and the adjacent playground. Carpenter Russell Hiatt of Cove and Ed Jones of Moro were on hand to erect the bridge. Local historical society volunteers Don Coats, Pat Macnab, Joe Weber, Barbara Cantrall, Carolyn DeMoss, Leroy Sherman, and Glenn Virtue assisted, led by Jerry Kirkpatrick. Mid Columbia Producers and Sherman County Road Department collaborated with heavy equipment and muscle as the steel I-beam donated by MCP was lifted into place in 1993. The wood structure, built on the steel, rests on concrete footings. ~Sherman County Historical Society newsletter, The Plow, 1993.
