City of Piqua, Ohio
— 1915 - 2005 —The 1915 Shawnee (Lorimer) Bridge was dedicated in part to the forty-four men, women and children who lost their lives in the 1913 flood. The waters of the Great Miami River broke free from their banks on March 25, 1913 and devastated the areas of East Piqua, Shawnee, and Rossville. Flood waters reached heights in excess of twenty feet in some Piqua locations, destroying homes, businesses, factories and the previous iron truss Shawnee Bridge.
