In 1875, the first indoor ice hockey game in recorded history was played. The first Kentucky Derby was held. The English Channel was swum for the first time. And a half-mile boardwalk was built in Webster Springs, West Virginia that stretched from the town of Webster Springs to a nearby hotel and gristmill. And while all that is interesting trivia, it’s not the most interesting part of the story we have to tell you today. The most interesting part is that you can still walk this boardwalk (accessible via two swinging bridges) today, approximately 150 years later. Or the third version of that original boardwalk, anyway!
