Bridge Documentation

There are several stone arch bridges in Watkins Glen State Park. They were designed for pedestrians to use to access the park attractions and date to the 1930s. They were built as a public works project, and as such are historically significant for their association of Depression-related recovery programs. Sentry Bridge is perhaps the best known of the bridges since it is in a very scenic location, and also is right at the front of the park and is even visible to motorists driving by on the nearby highway.

This bridge is a stunning example of how man-made bridges and natural landscapes can combine to create a truly beautiful scene.
