Great Stone Viaduct

Great Stone Viaduct

The Great Stone Viaduct served as the western approach to the former Baltimore and Ohio railroad bridge spanning the Ohio River.

The cover photo provides a view of the 43 sandstone arches of the Great Stone Viaduct, and the original iron bridge spanning the Ohio River in 1872, just one year after the completion of the construction of the Bridge. This photograph appeared in a book entitled “Photographic Images of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad: From the Lakes to the Sea”.

This site provides photographic opportunities of railroad train activity crossing the Ohio River, and a Ohio History Connection Marker at the Union Street arch.
