A-17 • The Israel Creek Bridge | 1875
South of Boonsboro, off Route 67 on Valley Road, off Garrett’s Mill Road

The Commissioners of Washington County inspected and accepted this handsome one-arch bridge over Israel Creek in April of 1875, authorizing payment of $590.00 to its builder, John Martin. Built toward the close of our region’s remarkable era of stone bridge-building, it is well worth a visit. Parking is convenient and it is easy to approach on foot. Today a beautiful and quiet rural neighborhood, this part of scenic Israel Creek was the site of a busy mill. A short distance upstream the original miller’s house still stands, a beautifully restored historic home.
