Where is the oldest surviving bridge in the U.S.?
The Frankford Avenue Bridge actually goes by many names. It was built in 1697 at the request of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, spanning 73 feet over the Creek of Pennypack in Holmesburg. The English nobleman wanted an easy route from his home to nearby Philadelphia, so the Philadelphia general assembly passed a bill to build bridges throughout the King’s Highway from Delaware Falls to the county of Sussex.
