Wehr's Bridge is also known as Sieger's bridge. The bridge is 140 feet long and crosses Jordan Creek. It was built in 1841 making it among the oldest still standing in Pennsylvania and in the nation. The name Wehr's Bridge came into use because Wehr's Mill, built in 1862, was located near the bridge.
