Erie 1848 Viaduct over Starrucca Creek in Lanesboro, PA

(Bridge Hunter, Historic Bridges, HAER, Satellite 56+ photos)

Note the date, 1848. This is one of the last stone arch bridges built because the use of wrought iron trestles was developed. The variance in the height of the stones is interesting.
