Description
Postcard of the Long Bridge located just west of Saratoga. The bridge spans Saratoga Creek and the Saratoga Canyon. A wooden bridge was built here in the 19th century that at the time was the longest and highest bridge in Santa Clara County, hence the name "Long Bridge." The wooden bridge was replaced by this stone bridge in 1901 and still stands today.
