A Betterton Grab. Not much going on here, even for Memorial Day. It was nice...

And your New Spot (Clue:You might consider a cross reference with the 1st Monday Baltimore chow crowd) . I love these little MD and PA towns. Tons of history and quaintness.

Tom,

Thanks for picking it up and moving it to HdG. I don't know if it will still be there when we arrive next Monday, but what the heck.

Oh, and your lights are on.

The Plant

So I decided to keep it up north for a little longer:


And if you want to be adventurous you can hang a left here and explore the gravel:

Or if you hungry - head over the bridge to some fine dinner or just some quick good food. I stopped at Jo Jo's and had a Burger. Super nice people and they riders too. Stop in and grab some grub!!

Yeah, hey O, been a while since I've seen the black Connie in action.

Jack- I tried to get it within striking distance of the Baltie crowd but it just keeps coming back this way.

Ovo,

That's funny, you moved it from the location of the Escape from Baltimore RTE to within sight of the other one I had proposed, Shaefer's Canal House!

Good to see it on the move, and a nice sunny day to do so.

I was just up there Friday, but on a different means of transportation! It was a little warm and not much of a breeze, but a good day for motoring down the canal.

Not the grab!

Drop. To the best of my knowledge, this is the most north east covered bridge in MD.

Bridge History

Nice Grab!! Great Day for a ride!

This bridge is 80 feet long and 13 feet wide and is closed to most traffic. The bridge was constructed in 1860 for the Cecil County Commissioners, at a cost of $1,165. In 1994, the bridge received the State's Historic Civil Engineering Landmark Award. The bridge is one of only two covered bridges in Cecil County, the other being Gilpin's Falls Bridge, built in 1860 over Northeast Creek.
In 1860 Ferdinand Wood was contracted by Cecil County to build a bridge over Lower Hills Fording. Its red roof and walls were added to protect the wooden frame from the elements. In 1927 the area around the bridge was purchased by William Dupont as part of his recreational farm and named Foxcatcher Farm. Upon his death the Department of Natural Resources took over the land. By then the bridge was showing the signs of age. In 1950 a truck broke through the floorboards and fell into the creek below. It wasn't until 1992 that the Department of Natural Resources rebuilt it. While false work supported the original roof, the bridge underneath was completely redone with a steel frame. The old Kingpost splices and Burr Arch chord timber was preserved and used to maintain the bridge's original appearance. It is registered with the National Society for the Preservation of Covered Bridges.
