South Branch Garrison Creek Bridge
Posted January 15, 2010, by Ed Hollowell (erhollow [at] dslextreme [dot] com)

To call this a stone bridge is a bit of a misnomer. It was made with what I think would be best described as cobblestone and mortar. A similar bridge was at the crossing of Garrison Creek and Coletrane Hill Rd. a few miles East. It was replaced about 1975 with normal UCEB. Wish I had a photo.
