Description: The S-Bridge and Ohio Historical Marker for the S-Bridge in Muskingum County. It is like many others on the National Road. The historical marker reads "Coaches, Conestoga wagons, herds of livestock, pioneers on foot or horseback, peddlers, soldiers, beggars - these and many have crossed this bridge on the National Road since 1830. Like many others on the road, the bridge was built with well-cut stone and good mortar in the shape of an "S" because it was easier to erect than one thrown straight across an oblique stream."
