On November 11th, 1930, thousands of Plattsburgh’s citizens turned out for the dedication of the city’s newest bridge. The Bridge Street Stone Arch Bridge replaced an aging and inelegant steel strut bridge to join the City Hall and McDonough Monument as iconic structures in Plattsburgh.
This talk will be led by Roger Black, who will discuss the bridge and its history, the downtown area, and view photos of the event.
Roger Black is a volunteer with the Clinton County Historical Association with a special interest in the new CCHA website and the thousands of glass plate and celluloid negatives in the Clinton County Museum’s archives.
This is free and open to the public, and will begin at 6:30 pm at the MHAB Life Skills Campus, 14 Dormitory Drive, Plattsburgh. There will also be a Zoom connection to the presentation which can be accessed by emailing the CCHA Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information call (518) 561-0340 or visit the Clinton County Historical Association website.
