Inscription
Built in 1854 by George Burgan for $1,550, this bridge spans Little Antietam Creek and stands on "Felfoot" a tract of land originally surveyed in 1734 and patented to Thomas Swearingen in 1737. An unusual feature of this bridge is the squared pilasters used at the outside end of each arch, where they apparently serve more as ornamentation than as a structural necessity. The two arches have 30' spans, and the total bridge length is 90'.
