Enjoyed a quick walk across the bridge from Wheeling over to Wheeling Island. Bridge is metal, both for driving and walking. Walkways on both sides was rather narrow and also was metal. Not a place for heels, for sure. Interesting to study the history of the bridge and the National Highway posted on the Wheeling side.

This antebellum bridge was, at one time, the longest suspension bridge in the Western Hemisphere and today, may be the oldest suspension bridge, still in use. Although vehicles are still allowed to travel across the bridge, I was able to safely walk across on the sidewalk and it took about 10 minutes one way. What's amazing is this bridge was... More

I remember when we could still drive on this bridge. My great-aunt used to tell me stories of seeing the circus come to town and seeing the elephants parading across the bridge. It's a must-see simply to marvel at old time engineering.

Always an awe inspiring site to see a bridge like this one ... and to think, all of those folks who climbed those cables and make our way home a wonderful drive!

I love walking across the old Suspension Bridge and looking down through the grates into the water. It's a truly unique experience.

Read the history of it on the sign on the main street side of the bridge. Travel over it everyday and the Casino is on the other side of the bridge.

The Roebling Suspension Bridge in Cincinnati has this one beat in my opinion, but this is a close second. I walk across the Roebling regularly but couldn't muster up the courage to take more than a couple steps out onto this one. It was very pretty to look at, day and night.
