The bridge was built in 1878 by John Smith and Samuel Stauffer.

Jackson’s Sawmill Covered Bridge or Eichelberger’s Covered Bridge is a covered bridge that spans the West Branch of the Octoraro Creek in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, United States. A county-owned and maintained bridge, its official designation is the West Octoraro #1 Bridge. The bridge is purportedly the only covered bridge in the county that is not built perpendicular to the stream it crosses due to the placement of the sawmill on one side of the bridge and the rock formations faced by the builders on the other side.

In 1986 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places as structure number 80003520.

The bridge can be found in Bart Township, 3.25 miles to the east of Quarryville and 1.5 miles south of Pennsylvania Route 372 on Mt Pleasant Road. Due to its remote location in an isolated part of the county, it is seen less than many of the county’s other covered bridges that are closer to the major populations centers such as Lancaster. If there is a Covered Bridge out there for you to see…it’s this one!

The simple realization that time lost is lost forever, is one I find utterly frightening.

Great photography is ultimately not about cameras; great photography is about great photographs.

A great photographer is a person who makes great photographs, not necessarily a person who owns a great camera or lens.
