HORSE & MULE BRIDGE

As I had stated many times before, the Grings Mill & Recreation Area has much History tied to it.  Since, the old Schuylkill Canal used to run right thru this area there are many “left over’s” from that time that still can be viewed.

This stack of stones was once a bridge support that traversed the Schuylkill Canal.  The old wooden bridge is long gone now, but at one time the Horses & Mules used to pull the canal boats up and down were brought across this bridge to the stable area that no longer exists.  There is one just like this across the River.

Thank you.
