London bridge, lake Havana city Arizona

London Bridge is a bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. However, it was built in the 1830s and formerly spanned the River Thames in London, England until i was dismantled in 1967 and relocated to Arizona.

In 1962, London Bridge (131-years-old at the time) was found to be sinking into the Thames, because it was unable to handle the 21st century traffic.

Robert McCulloch, founder of the Lake Havasu City, won the old bridge with a $2,460,000 bid at the City of London’s auction in 1968. McCulloch then spent another $7 million to have it moved to the community he established in 1964.
