Description 

From http://waynesborohistory.dyndns.org/Properties/Properties-r-... : Welty's Mill Bridge is a Scottish style bridge built by D.S. Stoner over the Antietam Creek. Around 1798 Mr. Welty opened a mill and distillery manufacturing a brand of rye and malt whiskey famed for over a century. The bridge is a double-arch stone bridge. It was completed in 1856 by local builder David S. Stoner. The sturdy span handled automobile traffic until the late 1980's when it was abandoned for a more modern bridge built nearby.
