Porter Creek Bridge Ruins

28795 Lake Rd, Bay Village, OH 44140, USA
For my birthday back in 2019 J and I went on some adventures. There was a list of abandoned places I wanted to visit, and we tried to visit as many as possible. A lot of them were "out west." I really don't know how to describe it because they were on the west side of Cleveland but some outside of Cleveland. Out west seems to refer to the West, but on the west side of Cleveland seems to indicate it's in Cleveland, but on the west side. If you have a better description, let me know! Anyways, back on topic. The first stop on our trip was to Porter Creek Bridge Ruins.
This spot is really easy to get to as it's nestled along Porter Creek Drive on your way to Huntington Beach (not that one) in Bay Village. It is not that hard to find or get to. The bridge was once a railway connecting Cleveland to Toledo. It didn't seem to last long. It was built 1901, but was abandoned in 1939 just about 10 years after the Great Depression, which was the beginning of the end for the little railway line.
I couldn't find much else about these ruins, so it's amazing it took me this long to write a post like this. I also got it done during S's nap time, so I consider this a win!
