David Street Bridge

edit this listing
Many different structures have spanned the Irvine Gorge at this location beginning in 1819 with the old Indian log bridge. In 1848 David Foote, John Cattanock and Sailor James Gairns built what was heralded as the first cantilever bridge in North America. The magnificent pier which supports the present bridge was built in 1868 by Charles Lawrence, one of Elora's early stonemasons.
