National Bridges National MonumentIn 1883, Cass Hite wandered up White Canyon from his mining claim on the Colorado River and "discovered" three stone bridges. He brought them to the attention of area residents and the scientific community. Nowhere else had three such monolithic structures been located in such close proximity. They were described as having "spans far greater than any heretofore known to exist." On April 16, 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt signed the proclamation creating Natural Bridges National Monument-Utah's first National Park Service area.
