Snook's Creek Covered Bridge

Washington MD-21-06x Snook's Creek Burr 1 Unk Unk c1928
Snook's Creek Covered Bridge crossed Snook's Creek about .7 mile south of Boonsboro¹ from the intersection of Route 34 and Alt Route US40, the Old National Road. A visit to Doug Bast's Boonsborough Museum of History² in Boonsboro, Maryland discovered the little bridge. Mr. Bast, an expert on Civil War and Boonsboro provided us with two photos of Snook's Creek Bridge.
¹Boonsboro was founded in 1792 by brothers William and George Boone, cousins of Daniel Boone. It was named Maragetsville after William Boone's wife, then evolved to Margaret Boones Ville. In 1831 it was known as Boonesborough and Boonsborough. In the early 1900s townfolks preferred the name Boonsboro.
²Boonsborough Museum of History is located at 113 North Main Street (Old National Road, Alt US40)) in Boonsboro, MD. It is open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays, May through September or by appointment.
