Historic Bridges of America

By simple definition, a bridge is a structure that allows passage over a variety of different obstacles, including bodies of water, valleys, chasms, or rough terrain. However, those with a deep appreciation for architecture know that such a definition doesn’t even begin to cover how important and historic many bridges really are.

Simple bridges have been around in one form or another since the earliest civilizations ruled the earth. However, they’ve come a very long way since. Today, the historic bridges of the world are more than just structures that help us get from place to place. They also represent years of technological development, research, and human vision.
