Crazy Man’s Hollow

Station Road bridge is the oldest steel bridge remaining in the valley. It was built in 1881 and the road has long since been closed to traffic. Today the bridge is used to to cross the river to get to the towpath trail on the other side.

There was once a small railroad depot by the bridge and that’s how the road got its name.

The hillside on the canal side of the bridge was once used to store ammunition. The locals said that “you would have to be crazy to live there”. This is how it quickly became known as Crazy Man’s Hollow.

Today the National Park Service has built a replica if the station where the old one once stood.
