Regarding Green Sergeant's Bridge. The bridge spans Wickecheoke Creek, a tributary of the Delaware River. The bridge, as well as a mill and local school of yesterday, was named after Green Sergeant who resided nearby.
Although the masonry abutments were built in 1750, the Green Sergeants Bridge was built in 1872 in accordance with the County Freeholders’ motion adopted September 16, 1872. Charles O. Holcombe was the designer and chief carpenter. He used a modified Queen Post truss construction.
