(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 248 yards above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
