Postcards, Placemats, Parchment, Cap, Sweatshirt


The Kinzua Viaduct
The Kinzua Viaduct, usually referred to as the Kinzua Bridge, was erected in 1882 and was the highest railroad bridge in the world at that time. It was, and still is, frequently described as "The Eighth Wonder of the World."
    The 329-acre Kinzua Bridge State Park, in McKean County Pennsylvania, features the remains of the bridge (viaduct) that was a National Engineering Landmark. A tornado in 2003 knocked down about half of the bridge.
    First built of iron, the original viaduct was 301 feet high, 2,053 feet long, and weighed 3,105,000 pounds. By 1900, in order to accommodate heavier trains, it was necessary to rebuild the entire structure with steel. That May, upwards of 150 men workied ten-hour days and completed the job in just 105 days. The new steel viaduct weighed 6,715,000 pounds, but retained the same height and length of the original bridge.
