Originally built in 1856, the Lumberville/Raven Rock covered bridge was in use until it was deemed unsafe in 1944. The bridge later reopened as the Roebling-designed pedestrian bridge, which you can see today. Currently, the bridge serves as an important link between the two historic canal systems in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Today’s modern suspension bridge is supported by the original span’s 1855 abutments and stone piers. The original toll keeper’s house lies on the Pennsylvania side.
