Stover-Myers Mill (1857-1906)

Bedminster and Tinicum

This covered bridge stood near the Stover-Myers Mill in Bedminster and Tinicum Townships and it spanned the Tohickon Creek.

The two-span bridge was 190 feet long. The Allentown Leader said that on April 26, 1906, a brush fire spread to the Stover-Myers Mill Bridge, leading to its destruction.

"It is said that a man living in the vicinity had a brush fire close to the wooden structure and that owing to the high wind the flames were carried to the framework, which was as dry as tinder. When it got a start, the wind carried the flames through the bridge at lightning speed and it is said that in five minutes after the fire started the structure was a mass of charred timber in the creek below," the newspaper reported.
