One of the most famous sites is the famous London Bridge. It once served Londoners for 137 years. In the spring of 1968, the late Robert McCulloch purchased the bridge at an auction for $2,460,000 and had its 10,276 granite blocks shipped to Long Beach California from the Panama Canal. It took 40 craftsmen 23 months to put the bridge back together. The span is 9 28 feet long and 63 feet wide. On October 10th, 1971, London Bridge was dedicated by the Lord Mayor of London and the Governor of Arizona. 10 years later the structure was deeded to the city’s citizens.
