July 31 Historical by MAL
I loved it because it was not only picturesque with wildflowers, a stream, trees and natures beauty, but it was directly related to our Commander in Chief, George Washington, when he crossed the Casselman Bridge during the French and Indian War. The River links to the Yougheghenny River in Pittsburgh, PA which is an hour from my home in Indiana, PA. There is a sign noting the crossing. My husband has taken pictures that we had framed and given to family members that have a rental in Deep Creek, MD. Thank you for making this a landmark.

First reaction: Dang, what a bridge. The Casselman Bridge is simply stunning. The picnic grounds surrounding it are wonderful, dated but very well kept. Classic fire places. The little village on the other side of the bridge has a weaver, a blacksmith and a host of other craftshops to visit. The restaurant has a dark nut pudding with vanilla ice cream that is well worth the trip by itself.
