Jake Crider presents Betsy Haller, president of the Coy Library of Shippensburg board, last Wednesday with a compilation of old photos and documents related to Maclay’s Mill Bridges to be stored in the library's Pennsylvania (PA) Room.

One Shippensburg area native will be watching closely over the historic Maclay’s Mill Bridges in Lurgan Township once the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation begins a rehabilitation project next year.

“PennDOT will replace them in 2020, and I just want to see them preserved for future generations to enjoy,” said Jacob “Jake” Crider, who has spent 72 years of his life residing near the nearly 200-year-old landmarks.
