Description 

The bridge is featured in Fred J. Moll's "Pennsylvania Historic Bridges, PA (Postcard History Series)" which I highly recommend. Moll notes that the stone bridges in this area are made from limestone and sandstone and other deposits that are abundant in southeast PA.

Bridge and span lengths are estimates from www.bridgemapper.com

According to Frederick Fleming Unger in "Old Bridges of Franklin County" this bridge was 180 feet in length and 14 feet in width.
