Synopsis :

Book by Gill, Paul E.

From the Inside Flap:

This work examines the legal, political and technological aspects of highway bridge-building in nineteenth century Cumberland County. An introductory section on bridges and bridge-building assists the reader to understand and appreciate the wealth of highway bridges that the county once possessed. Documentation was drawn from numerous county sources including Squire John D. Hemminger's unpublished Bridge Book, and an original county map prepared by Edward N. Meals of Mount Holly Springs, showing the locations of the bridges. These resources supplement and explain the more than 200 photographs depicting the stone arch, covered wooden truss, and metal truss bridges built by our ancestors which survived into the twentieth century.

This book is the first volume in the County Heritage series to be published by the Society in preparation for the 250th Anniversary of Cumberland County in the year 2000.
