Virtual Program

Miss Charlotte

People called it “The Bridge That Couldn’t Be Built.” When first proposed in the 1910s, no suspension bridge had ever been built over such a distance or in such daunting open-ocean conditions. In this program, John Martini, a noted local historian and author, talked about the geography, the bizarre visions for bridging it, the challenges overcome by its builders, and much more.
