Suspension bridge in Rockport. This bridge was the first ever constructed in the state in 1877. The Cottoneva Lumber Company at that early date recognized the need of good loading facilities and the suspension bridge was the result. The bridge was constructed between the mainland and an island and consisted of one span supported by a cable of seven ropes, which was capable of holding the carloads of lumber that passed daily over the track. The chute can be seen on the left and had a capacity of 190,000 feet of lumber in a day of twelve hours. The bridge and the chute cost in the neighborhood of $30,000 and was erected by William R. Miller
