Site of York Furnace Bridge, last of the wooden bridges to be erected across the Susquehanna between Harrisburg and tidewater. The bridge was built by Black & Huber in 1856. During construction four spans of the section between Bair Island and the Lancaster County shore blew down and were promptly replaced. An ice jam destroyed this bridge in 1857.
