This bridge over Antietam Creek at Funkstown was built in 1833 by George Weaver for $1,800. At this site was Shafer's Mill where flour was ground. The most notable feature of this bridge is the graduated size of its three arches, growing larger from the east to the west as it rises from low ground to high on the western bank. The spans of the bridge are 20', 31' and 35', and the bridge is 109' in length.
