Additional Details:
The aluminum painted 2,235 ft. bridge across the Ohio River connected Point Pleasant, W. Va. with Kanauga, Ohio. The bridge was christened in 1928 as the "Gateway to the South". The bridge was a major link on a busy highway between Charleston, W. Va., and major Ohio cities. On Dec. 15, 1967, the bridge tragically collapsed, carrying many to their doom in the cold waters of the Ohio River 80 feet below
