This Day In History: May 27, 1937

At the height of the Great Depression, the Golden Gate Bridge opened to the public on May 27, 1937. The bridge took four years to construct, and when it was completed, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world, spanning 4200 feet. The bridge was named after the narrow straight that marked the entrance to the San Francisco Bay.

 

Since its opening 79 years ago, nearly two billion cars have crossed the bridge.
