"Replica" Stone Bridge



The "Replica" Stone Bridge and its park, the Stone Bridge Memorial Park, is a memorial to Fayetteville's Old Stone Bridge (See Old Stone Bridge Photos and Info) which once spanned the Elk River about 300 yards to the southwest of the park. Today, the Old Stone Bridge lies in stately ruins which would remind someone of something resembling the glory of old Rome. The memorial bridge is supposed to be a "slightly" smaller "duplicate" of its original. However, take notice, that the original bridge was a six span stone arch bridge and this bridge has only three arch spans. However one has to appreciate the fact that at least someone took the time and effort to preserve the memory of the old bridge.

Picture of Old Stone Bridge .

I purchased a picture of the old Stone Bridge recently in an antique shop on square. There was a yellowed, typed, piece of paper stuck in bottom of frame decribing the error in the building of bridge that caused one side higher than other ...making it impossible for car approching one side to see car coming from other.....Somehow this little slip of paper disappeared before I got home with picture and I would like to have more info on this feature if possible. I love my bleak, black and white picture and would like to put this notation back on picture someway...Thanks ...to anyone out there for sharing your knowledge....Sue
