The story goes that one of the former neighbors of the bridge was incensed over naming the bridge after local resident Harry Evans. He claimed that because Harry lived at the top of the hill that it was named after another Evans who lived in the valley. However, county records show that Harry Evans owned the land near the bridge. The land stayed in the Evans name until the 1960s.
