• What to do: When the National Road was a major route to everywhere west of the Appalachian Mountains, the Casselman River Bridge was considered a marvel of technology. When completed in 1813, the 80-foot bridge was the longest single-span stone arch in the United States. Some thought it wouldn’t stand for long, but the bridge carried foot traffic, animals, carriages, wagon and ultimately automobiles and trucks until 1933. It’s no longer open to vehicular traffic. The 4-acre park, east of Grantsville in Garrett County in Maryland’s northern panhandle, is a popular attraction for photographers, fly anglers and history buffs.
