Pictured here is the east end of the covered bridge that crossed both the canal and Schuylkill River about one hundred yards north of the present bridge that allows State Street to extend into Tilden Township. In the fall and winter the east and west foundations of the bridge are plainly visible.
The Schuylkill Navigation Canal was unique in its construction, being roughly one hundred and ten miles in length, stretching from Schuylkill Haven to Philadelphia and being roughly one half navigable water using "slack water" pools created by damming the river (the highest one on the system was the Big Blue Mountain Dam at Kernsville at twenty-nine feet plus), and the balance being actual canal and locking systems.
