Antietam Creek Bridge

Frederick Street
Funkstown, MD 21740

The Antietam Creek Bridge is a triple arch stone bridge spanning Antietam Creek at Funkstown, Washington County, Maryland.

The bridge was built by James Lloyd and a crew of Irish laborers between 1828-1831. It is the oldest stone bridge over the Antietam. The bridge is 131 feet in length and has a 30 foot deck.

A century after it was completed, the Maryland State Roads Commission widened the bridge, adding a parallel concrete section on the south face. The original stone face is still visible on the north side of the bridge.

The bridge is part of the National Pike and is today marked as Alternate Route 40. Between 1901-1939 the bridge carried trolley traffic between Hagerstown and Funkstown.
