Dedicated in the memory of Angele M. Langles for her gift to the park, the Langles Bridge (1902) behind Casino Building is a popular for spot for wedding ceremonies and landscape painters. Angele and her mother died on the morning of July 4, 1898 when the French steamboat, La Bourgogne, sank after colliding with a British ship in the North Atlantic.
