Decades After Disappearing: History Lurks Under Lake Norman  [Page 8]

Beatties Ford Bridge

Beatties Ford Bridge was named for John Beatty, who according to historians, was the first white man to cross the Catawba River while following the trading path used by Native American tribes of the area.

The bridge was the main crossing over the Catawba River on Highway 73. It was only partially demolished to make way for the lake. Today, the bridge supports are present about 75 feet under the waters surface.
