Poffenberger Road Bridge
Posted January 25, 2011, by Phil Schmitz (almach4 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

There are two Poffenberger stone arch bridges here. They are also known as Claggett's Mill Bridge and Claggett's Mill Race Bridge. The shorter bridge is the Claggett's Mill Race Bridge. I believe they are near to each other so the GPS coordinates could be the same. The first two photos attached are the Claggett's Mill Bridge and the third is the Clagget's Mill Race Bridge. All photos taken in 1989. The confusion is understandable.

This site has two entries for the Poffenberger Road bridge, both with the same coordinates. The other entry has a photo that doesn't match the bridge I drove over a couple weeks ago. A photo is attached.

Webmaster's note: The photo that was here has been incorporated into the main site.
