A-10 • Roxbury Mills Bridge | 1824
On Roxbury Road, West of Alt Route 40, The Old National Pike

The forcefully flowing Antietam reminds us that most of our bridges were built at the site of natural fords. They made natural meeting and market places, and soon water-powered mills were built. Increased traffic would soon lead to the need for a bridge, and then a better bridge. The Ford; The Mill; The Bridge: an early industrial triad. It’s a sequence we see all along the Antietam. Roxbury was originally a sawmill, then a grist mill, and finally a distillery! The beautifully restored bridge still serves our road system but alas, the distillery is no more.
