London Bridge – Lake Havasu City, AZ

LondonBridge_LakeHavasuThe London Bridge, currently located in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, USA, was originally built in London, in 1831. 

By 1962, it was determined that the bridge was not structurally sound enough to support the increased load created by the level of modern traffic crossing it.  As a result, it was sold by the City of London in 1968 to entrepreneur Thomas McCullough, who moved it to its present location in Arizona.

At a cost of $7.5 million, the bridge was distmanted from its position over the  Thames River and reassembled on the Colorado River in Arizona.  Mr. McCullough had no idea that the transfer would stir up the ghosts that had taken up residence in the ancient stones.  It was reopened on October 10, 1971.

Shortly thereafter, witnesses reported seeing the ghosts of a woman and a British bobby walking on the bridge at night.   Lake Havasu City is at the California border on Highway 95.  Find out more about Lake Havasu and the London Bridge here.
