Milanville Bridge, December 2016

Daniel Skinner, in 1763, steered a raft of white pine logs through this river channel to Philadelphia ship yards - creating a Milanville timber industry that lasted until WWI.

Late in the 19th century, great grandson Milton won legal and political skirmishes to charter the Milanville Bridge Company -  which hired contractors who opened our bridge in 1901. 

Planners adapted a traditional crossing used by native peoples and white settlers, where ferries had plied for nearly a century. And where New York’s  Erie Railroad lay within walking distance.
