The dam and falls at
the Mill Pond
This is the the original stonebridge
in Bellvale. It was built in 1832 to take the place of the
old wooden one which was unsafe for travel. This image shows
how it appeared in about 1907.
Below is the bridge built to
replace the massive stone arch bridge. This was built in
the 1930s when the state highway 17A was created.
This was probably an improvement
in safety but definitely not in appearance. That beautiful
handcut stone old archway all destroyed-what a shame!
