Notes
  • I visited this bridge in October, 2002 and again in 2006. The black and white photo shows the same bridge at its original location on Bentz Street (then Mill Alley). It was later moved to Baker Park, and then moved again (in 1927 or 1930) to its present location, another location in Baker Park.
  • Local legend states this bridge was used by Stonewall Jackson and his troops when they entered Frederick on September 10, 1862.
  • Closed March, 2008 due to safety concerns.
  • Near 2006 William O. Lee (Carroll Creek Park) - Frederick, Maryland, USA.
