This three-arch span with its unusually high center arch was built in 1830 over a ford in the Antietam Creek that was used by Braddock's army in 1755. Samuel Hitt was instrumental in financing this bridge, which was built by Silas Harry, as agent for John Weaver, at a cost of only $1,413.66. This ford was later chosen by Hitt as the site of his grist and sawmill, now known as Pry's Mill.
