A-6 • Claggett’s Mill Bridge | 1840
South of Funkstown --On Poffenberger Road, West of Alt
Route 40

Built by John Weaver at a cost to the county of $2800, its graceful lines and beautiful stone work complemented the famous Claggett estate, “Valentia,” whose centerpiece mansion still stands, This industrious family was among the very the first in the valley to introduce agricultural machinery. The estate’s agricultural and milling operation was so successful that the Claggett Farm with upwards of a hundred workers in its fields and mills, actually set grain prices throughout the region.
