East Branch Bridge
Posted September 16, 2020, by D L

This road at one point used to be (East?) Crackerneck road, my grandparents previously lived on it until it terminated right before the railroad track. People would often dump garbage at the end of the street. According to USGS maps it existed up until it was removed anywhere from 1933 to 1945, according to the maps I could find.
