H Moyer Road Bridge
Posted April 7, 2022, by JIM STEWART (JAMESEMSTEWART57 [at] GMAIL [dot] COM)

CHARLES SNYDER, COM, WAS THE TOWN OF MINDEN HIGHWAY COMMISSIONER IN 1889. EACH TOWN (TOWNSHIP) IN NYS HAD EITHER ONE OR THREE HIGHWAY COMMISSIONERS. THE H. C. WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR BRIDGES IN THE TOWN. IN THE CASE OF A BRIDGE CROSSING A TOWN LINE, THE H. Cs. OF EACH TOWN WERE RESPONSIBLE. IN CITIES IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE. MOST OF THE LOCAL HISTORIC BRIDGES WERE BUILT UNDER THIS SYSTEM. CANAL AND RAILROAD BRIDGES WERE ANOTHER MATTER. GROTON BRIDGE CO. OFTEN PROVIDED THESE "COM" PLAQUES ON THESE BRIDGES.
