Veteran’s Memorial Bridge of Ariton, Alabama
 
by Jocelyn Rayford
 
It is said that the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, builtover the Pea River in 1920
-
1921, was the first concretereinforced bridge built in Alabama. It cost $92,109.97.In his
 
 book 
Claybank Memories
, Val McGee states thaton August 3, 1921, the “Pea River Bridge…was dedicat-ed in a huge ceremony to the 57 men from Dale Countywho lost their lives in WWI. There were speeches byMrs. Thomas Owens, Director of Alabama Archives andHistory and by the State Highway Engineer…”The following were engineers who worked on the bridge during the year of 1920
-
21: Mitcham, Keller,Smith and Land. Dale County officials who took part insupporting its construction were: Windham, Sessions,Roberts, Ziglar, Mullins and Archer.
 
During the year 1970, this bridge was chosen to be oneof two highway bridges opened for Highway 231. In1977, the Dale County Historical Society was able to getthe Alabama Register of Landmarks to accept this bridgeas part of Alabama Heritage. So, in 1979, they joinedwith the Historic Chattahoochee Commission to erect amarker that indicated the importance of this bridge to thestate of Alabama and to the Chattahoochee area. They placed their historic marker on the north side of the bridge.
 
Unfortunately by February 2011 this marker becameunreadable due to time and exposure. So on this date,the members of the Brundidge VFW Post 7055 held arededication ceremony to replace the marker with a newone. They did this to express their pride that the Veter-an’s Memorial Bridge near Ariton, is built on the mid- point between Brundidge and Ozark, thus, it is a vital part of the Brundidge community and heritage, as well.
 
Thanks to everyone for the good turnout we had for the membership appreciation mixer that was held onMay 16th. Thanks also goes out to the Program commit-tee for the hard work to pull it together. Thanks also toJ&W Enterprises for the good food and to Dale Moatesfor the great entertainment
