The Original Bridge was built to connect the Big Spring with the Fremont Spring, the Pleasant View Hotel and Sanitarium, and the Elk pasture. Later it also provided access to the Hopewell Hospital which eventually became the first county hospital. The Original Bridge was condemned in 1984 and removed in 1991 by the Wyoming National Guard then restored in 1992 by the North Dakota National Guard.
