Larg National Historical Parks, some National Monuments, and certain other areas listed in the National Park system are historic landmarks of national importance that are highly protected already, often before the inauguration of the NHL program in 1960, and are then often not also named NHLs per se. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and nowhere is that more evident than in the incredibly creative and unique designs that criss-cross Maryland’s watery channels.Adding to the list of superlatives, the Casselman River Bridge's 80-foot single stone arch was the longest single-span stone arch bridge in the nation when built in 1813 and was used until 1933; today it is preserved in its own four-acre roadside state park in Garrett County and is a great way to take a quick, scenic respite from driving through the Appalachians.
The Oxford-Bellevue Ferry crosses the Tred Avon River, and is the oldest privately-operated ferry route in the nation, dating back to 1683.
The historic White's Ferry which travels between Dickerson, Maryland and just north of Leesburg, Virginia, is the only ferry still operating on the Potomac River.
These crossings have become part of Maryland's scenery and history; instead of being just a way to get to your destination, make them a part of your journey, or even an excursion all their own.
Sometimes called "romantic shelters" or "kissing bridges," these bridges, roofed to protect the wooden supporting trusses from the elements, were often the scene of a kiss between courting couples while crossing.
Three different former employees of Playmate Brande Roderick, who was a contestant on the show twice.
During season 13 of the hit reality show, you may have seen Trump's terrible blowjob joke about Roderick; when fellow contestant Bret Michaels described how the model had gotten on her knees and begged to not be fired, the always classless businessman replied: Oh no, we hope Bret Michaels feels better soon!
Signaling the start of many a family vacation, Maryland’s “Bay Bridge” is more than just the gateway to the state’s Eastern Shore. Memorial Bay Bridge, Maryland’s most famous bridge is actually comprised of two bridges that, at just over four miles in length, are the longest bridges in the state.
Crossing either bridge resembles taking a helicopter ride across the Bay, with scenic views of Sandy Point State Park, Kent Island, the wide expanse of the Bay to the south, and even Sandy Point Shoal Lighthouse in the Bay to the north.
