Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge Destroyed by Hurricane September 29, 1896

 

This was the last wooden covered bridge (prior ones were destroyed in 1832 and 1863) to connect Columbia and Wrightsville, it was replaced by a steel-truss bridge that would last until being dismantled when the Route 30 bridge was built in 1972.
