Historical Feature

Overview

No votes yet

The Opposum Road Bridge is a double-arched, camelbacked, random rubble bridge, approximately 54 feet long and 15 feet wide, which was built across Bedens Brook in 1822. Its stonework, parapets, arches, and approaches are intact and its few alterations are part of the continuous maintenance of a structure that still functions as a bridge. The stucture retains its integrity of location and setting and is the second earliest dated bridge surviving in Somerset County. A stone marker, which is no longer legible, is set in the inside surface of the west wall of the bridge and reads "BEDENS BROOK / 5M to P / 1822 / JWR / AHK". Four iron rings, 3 to 4
