Cornell Botanic Gardens: Fall Creek Gorge Tour

Thurston Avenue Bridge

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Cornell Botanic Gardens


To connect the Cornell campus to the new and growing community across Fall Creek from here, this bridge was built in 1897, followed by the Stewart Avenue Bridge in 1899, and the nearby suspension footbridge in 1901. In 1900, a line of the Ithaca Street Railway (trolley) known as “The Loop” was added, which crossed Thurston Avenue Bridge to provide service to residents of Cornell Heights.
