Sciotoville Bridge, 1917, designed and built by two famous American Civil Engineers, Gustav Lindenthal, D.Sc. (1850-1935), the Consulting Engineer (and) David Barnard Steinman, D.Sc. (1887-1960), the designer and stress analyst. A double track railroad bridge of twin spans each 775 feet long, it remained until 1935 the longest continuous truss bridge in the world and stands today as the prototype for continuous structures. Its construction marked a major advance in the art of bridge engineering and was a pioneer achievement in continuous truss analysis. In beauty of design, size and erection techniques it stands as a landmark of progress in man's mastery of his environment.

Sciotoville, named after the Little Scioto River, which flows into the Ohio River is located at the intersection of US 52 and SR. 335 between the village of New Boston and Wheelersburg along the northern bank of the Ohio River. It was founded in 1835 and platted in 1841 by William Brown. It was annexed by the city of Portsmouth in 1921.
Sciotoville was the first area in Scioto County to have been settled. From that settlement, a great deal of firsts came from the Sciotoville area. The first marriages, first births, first July 4th Celebration, first field cleared for crops, the first water mill and first house built. Bonsers held the first public celebration of the Fourth of July in the State of Ohio in 1808. People came from Chillicothe, Maysville, Gallipolis, and other places with about 300 persons were present.
