Title

Oldest Bridge on the Genesee River, Geneseo NY

Description

At the time of this photograph wooden structure was at least 70 years old, having been constructed in 1830 by a Mt. Morris contractor named Russell Daboll. Its design was somewhat unusual in that wood was used even for the abutments upon which the span rested. At left side of photo is Gilmore's mill, operated first by Thomas and then his son Freeman. In 1913 the bridge was damaged by farm equipment and replaced by a metal one.
