This is a carriage or foot bridge ruin on the Shenandoah River right before it meets the Potomac River. This bridge connected Harpers Ferry, WV and the area around Loudoun Heights, VA. Older photographs show that this small bridge was not there in 1877 but was in 1896. It was most likely destroyed in one of the major floods that affected earlier bridges in the early 1900s. After which it was never rebuilt. A route bridge is now farther up the river, to the west, and also supports part of the Appalachian Trail. All that is left of this original carriage and footbridge are a few support columns such as these, three in all. 2011-2013.
