In 1912, Mary was 31 years old when Arizona was admitted to the United States in February (on Valentine's Day). It became the 48th state in the Union.

Taking 5 years to build, the 4,200-foot-long suspension bridge was an engineering marvel of its time - 11 men died during construction. The "international orange" color was chosen because it resisted rust and fading. To the present, it is the symbol of the City that is known throughout the world.
