The town of Bridgeville has a rich past and a mature present with the potential for future development in about any direction that you can imagine. The town of Bridgeville was founded in 1865 by a trapper named Slaughter Robinson. He would ferry folks across the Van Dusen river and his camp became known as Robinson's Ferry. In 1871 William Drinkwater became the last white man to be slain in the Pacific northwest Indian wars. After six Indians attacked a woman and her mother, an experienced Indian fighter assembled a party, including Drinkwater, to give chase. Drinkwater got out ahead of the rest of the party and was slain. The rest of the party dispatched the Indians. Drinkwater is buried in the Bridgeville town cemetery. In 1875 a bridge was erected over the Van Dusen and the little settlement's name was officially changed to Bridgeport. Later, when the post office was opened the little town's name was changed to Bridgeville. In 1909 Henry Cox purchased the, now, rather substantial town and it remained in his family until 1972 when it was purchased by the Lapple family who are the current owners. In the early 1900's Bridgeville had a twenty four room, two story hotel, a large stable which was used for remounts for the pack trains and then the stages, there was also a blacksmith shop, a general store, a saloon and several homes. The first school house was built in 1877. Before that classes were held in a log cabin. The second Bridgeville bridge was built in 1879. Both the first and second bridges were built with lumber from Pepperwood Falls, just two miles south of Bridgeville. The big concrete bridge was built in 1925. The new bridge was dedicated in 1997.
