    Waco Suspension Bridge

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Waco Suspension Bridge was built in 1870 as a pedestrian and wagon crossing bridge. It became the vital route by which much of the great Western movement passed, including the Chisholm Trail. It was the first suspension bridge in Texas and at the time, it was likely to have been the longest suspension bridge in the world (13 years before the Brooklyn Bridge). It is in use today as pedestrian crossing of Brazos River.
