C&O Trestle Bridge
The C&O trestle remained in use until the 1980s, and now stands as a silent sentinel to the former glory days of the railroad. In recent years the City of Charleston launched a plan to rehabilitate the span for incorporation into a proposed rail-trail, but costs proved too high. Currently, the historic trestle is facing an uncertain future, It remains a fine example of railroad engineering and construction techniques in use at the dawn of the 20th century.
