Also see . . .  Elm Street Stone Arch Bridge (Wikipedia). It is a short bridge built over Alton Creek in the early 20th century using stonemasonry techniques and an arch bridge design that had been employed in the Catskills since the 18th century. As one of the few extant and intact bridges in that style in the region, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
