Explore Four Manmade Wonders of Ohio

Ohio ingenuity abounds in every major city and small town. But here, we’ll explore just four intriguing manmade wonders: Big Muskie’s Bucket, The Bridge to Nowhere, Fountain of Lights, and The Great Stone Viaduct.

Big Muskie” used to be the biggest earth-moving machine in the world. Today, you can sense its size by standing inside the enormous bucket, which is now a roadside tourist attraction.

The Bridge to Nowhere is in Euclid’s Hillandale Park. Nearly 100 years ago, the bridge was completed, but no roads were ever connected to it. The project was scrapped after the 1929 market crash. Its “S” curve over the valley in the woods is a peculiar site.

The Fountain of Lights at Riverscape Metropark in Dayton is one of the largest fountains in the world. The series of five 60-foot-high fountains shoots over 2,500 gallons of water per minute, 200 feet high and over 400 feet across, an amazing spectacle seen miles away.

The Great Stone Viaduct in Bellaire was part of the country’s longest railroad system. Over 150 years later, a massive renovation project turned the top into a walking trail and overlook. It is Reminiscent of a Roman aqueduct.
