What Was the First Suspension Bridge?


The first suspension bridge, built in 1816, was a temporary footbridge in Philadelphia. The Niagara Falls Suspension Bridge was the first railway suspension bridge built over the Niagara River in the USA. The bridge stood from 1855 to 1897, with the wooden trusses, being replaced in 1880 due to decay and rot from the moisture of the falls.
