Grant Memorial Bridge

The cannons, beacons, and stone work which you see were a part of the 1927 bridge and were incorporated into the replacement bridge. The handrail which now supports the nameplate is the designer's visual impression of the 1927 bridge. The new structure and the original appertenances have been rededicated as the Grant Memorial Bridge.
