Wm. Forsythe Stone Culvert

NOTICE THE TWO ROADS ON THE MAP (1) ROUTE 30, CHAMBERSBURG RD AND (2) LINCOLN HIGHWAY (PROBABLY THE OLD ROUTE 30). THE 1917 FORSYTHE STONE CULVERT OUGHT TO BE ON (2), WEST OF CASHTOWN. THE 1948 CONCRETE BRIDGE PROBABLY IS ON (1) NORTHWEST OF CASHTOWN.

I am not sure but either this 1948 bridge replaced the William Forsythe Stone Culvert that was built around 1917 or there is a mistake.
