On Dec. 15, 1967, the Silver Bridge fell into the Ohio River. The 39-year-old bridge carried U.S. 35 over the Ohio River and connected downtown Point Pleasant, W.Va., with the unincorporated community of Kanauga, Ohio, a few miles north of what were then the city limits of Gallipolis. The final count showed 46 people died.
