Inscription
In 1918 Charles Deering constructed this bridge to cross Cutler Creek on the way to his retirement home. At the time this accessway was called "Old Cutler Road". Deering relocated it from its original location inside the natural areas of his property. He chose the Chinese theme in startling contrast to the South Florida norm and to remind him of his travels through Asia as a young U.S. Naval officer.

Conservation work completed in conjunction with Rotary Club of Dadeland - Pinecrest, Community Project September 2001
