Created By: Cornell Botanic Gardens


This scenic bridge honors Colonel Henry Sackett, Cornell student (class of 1875) and a dedicated member of Cornell’s Board of Trustees. He donated a large portion of his personal wealth to Cornell in the 1920’s to build the now iconic trails, staircases, and footbridges in the two gorges of Cornell—Cascadilla and Fall Creek.
