View of the Battle Creek Bridge and banks. Donor/Source: Ruth Hitchcock (Loan), Lillian Hornby (Loan).
Battle Creek Plateau Bridge. Built in 1867 by Mr. J. F. Winsell on the Red Bluff Millville Road for $112 and used as a legging road to connect the V Flume, owned by the Blue Ridge Flume and Lumber Company and located in Tehema County, to the South of Battle Creek. Besides serving the mills located to the south of Battle Creek , it also gave an outlet to the mills north of Battle Creek, including the Eureka Mill (Klots Mill), Vilas Mill, built by M. Wierner in 1851 and later sold to McComber in 1853 as well as others of the Shingletown area. Lumber was carried by the Flume to the "Old Dump," located in the Bend area from where it was refted down the Sacramento or hauled into Red Bluff, via the Jelly's Ferry. The bridge was rebuilt in 1894 by finds camping from both counties. In 1918 the second bridge collapsed and was replaced by a steel and concrete bridge built by CCC workers in 1934. (The photo from the collection of Lillian Hornby of Red Bluff, through courtesy of Ruth Hitchcock.) (Mrs. Hornby recieved the picture from Myrtle McNamar of Cottonwood.)
