Lake Champlain Bridge at Crown Point, New York
Crown Point, NY, to Chimney Point, VT
Erected in 1929, the great bridge spanning Lake Champlain between Chimney Point, Vermont and Crown Point, New York signaled the beginning of automobile tourism in the North Country. This first in the nation, continuous truss style bridge heralded a new era of prosperity for residents on both sides of this storied waterway. Allowed to deteriorate for several years, the bridge was demolished and has been replaced.
