Strong Historical Society

View of the bridge spanning the Sandy River in Strong, ca. 1950. The iron bridge, opened to the public November 22, 1922, was quickly proven to be wide enough to accomodate two automobiles, as the first two vehicles raced across it. One was driven by a lady and the other by a gentleman. There is still debate as to who was the winner.
