The Little Bridge Over Jack's Creek


ISO 250, f/5, 1/160s
Edited: Lightroom

This bridge in central Pennsylvania
(Stone Arch Bridge Park, Mifflin County)
has quite the history.
It was built in 1813
over Jack's Creek
(I wonder who Jack was)
as part of the Pittsburgh to Harrisburg Turnpike

It is hard to imagine
this little bridge
as part of the PA Turnpike.
The turnpike has since moved (and grown)
and all that is left of the old one
is this little bridge.

I made my husband
join me a in getting lost
while traversing unknown country roads
just to find this bridge.
He must love me.




The Party's Here! Where I am linking these days.

So pretty - so crazy that once was part of the Turnpike!

Like out of a painting. The bridge is quite old as well!

Thanks so much for linking in with "Through My Lens".

This bridge is too classy for a turnpike.

What a lovely spot! Amazing, isn't it, that the roads of this country were the size of this bridge. Growth is not all its cracked up to be. So glad this little bridge still exists.

i love getting lost on purpose and this is a beautiful bridge, can't believe it is that old. daddy was born in 1913 and it was a hundred years old then. wow.

Yes, it would be hard to see this bridge as part of the Pennsylvania turnpike. It is a handsome bridge though!! I wonder who Jack was too! Happy Thanksgiving!

He's a good man. I love picking an obscure location to go photograph, but no one in my family will join me. I guess the wacky gene mutated.

What a quaint bridge! And does he (your hubby) love you for finding this bridge? (teasing! Hubby-s of creative women do a lot of things for love, and not because they're really interested in it:):) )

A pretty bridge and well built to have lasted two centuries.

Almost like something you would see on Dartmoor in the UK
