Fort Hill, footbridge completed photograph
Description: A photograph of a completed footbridge. Design and estimate of costs for two timber footbridges near the shelter building were approved for construction on September 14, 1934. Work on the project started a few days later. Stone and timber were obtained within a mile from the site. Abutment stones were laid in cement mortar. Timber was treated with weather beaten brown creosote stain. Both bridges were completed October 31, 1934. This photo was the frontispiece of F.E. Whitehouse's (camp superintendent) completion report for Fort Hill State Park, December 1934. This photo was included as Project No. 47a, Bridges - Foot. View on Ohio Memory.
