Beaver Brook Bridge


Time Stands Still In Clinton

and in large parts of Hunterdon County, which is why we have so darn many 100+ year old trusses!

BUT this house is the key ... note the fancy porch columns and the front dormer.

Street View 


Just your basic modern chunk of concrete, but 100 years ago it was a riveted Pratt pony truss made from angle sections with your basic lattice railing on the bride but with a nice railing along the walkway on the east side. Before that it was probably something wooden; Leigh Street has been part of Clinton since the very beginning, though it may not have always been called that.
