This bridge was constructed by Irish immigrants. This is where the saying “paying off the dead horse,” came out. This is because they worked on the bridge to pay off the cost it took to immigrate from their home country to America. Working conditions were rough and locals would provoke and taunt the immigrants. The bridge was finished in 1823, but since then had some work done to it. In 1931 the bridge was widened.
