Built by Levi Fink and Elias McMellen for $1219 in 1859. It was also known as Yohn’s Mill Bridge.
Bypassed by a new concrete bridge in 1973, the bridge is located on private property 1/4 south of Highway 23 and Pool Forge Road in Caenarvon Township. Historical records tell us that before James Buchanan became president, he met his fiance at Pool Forge, but she died before they could be married and he became our country’s only bachelor president.
