This beautiful stone arch bridge fits in quite well with its rural setting. The bridge features stone parapets with pole railings on top. The abutments flow right into the superstructure of the bridge and feature a stepped design to them.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 34'-long, stone arch bridge built in 1907 is laid up in rusticated ashlar, and it has flared, stepped wingwalls. The parapets are topped with flat coping stones and iron pipe railings with plumber fittings. One of 7 similar stone arch bridges built between ca. 1905 and ca. 1915 in the county, this is the oldest documented example. It retains its fine masonry that is the hallmark of the best stone arch bridges from the last quarter of the 19th century and early 20th century. The bridge is historically and technologically significant.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries 1 lane of an unimproved township road over a stream at the intersection of TR 626 and TR 610. It is located in a predominantly agricultural area with scattered late-20th century houses. At the southwest quadrant is a ca. 1990 modular house.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: Yes
