Long Description:
As far as I could discern, this bridge is unnamed but has a fabulously preserved and pristine dated stone which is remarkable considering the decline of the area. The stone is in the center of the bridge about a foot or two from the ground, rectangular, heavy -looking and inset into the bridge so as to be 2 inches from flush with the rest of the structure. The marker simply reads Built in 1853. It is a terrific piece of local history and works well the surrounding area. The bridge acts as a gateway to the Mill Race section of Mount Holly, the oldest neighborhood in the historic district. Most of this place has been turned into a unique and very eclectic shopping district. As a bonus, there is also an old upping stone located here as well.

As a reference point, there is a shop called Earth Angel adjacent to the bridge. Their address is 11 White Street, Mount Holly, NJ 08060. There is a whole lot of meter-free parking road side.
