Mennonite Bridge

width="1500"
Years ago the Mennonites ask the township for a bridge across the Conestoga River. The Township priced the job at $20,000 at that time but was not in the budget. The mennonites offered to do the job themselves at no cost to the Township. The Township agreed of course and this bridge was built ( at the cost of $300.00 by the way). It was built in such a way as to allow the water to flow over the bridge during flooding so as not to create an obstruction. Ingenious!!
