Note: This not the original bridge; the old one having been replaced over time to current construction standards. The highway is called Ware’s Church Road. This is the land of Valentine, Edward, Nicholas, John and Robert Ware.
“This crossing over the Dragon Run took it’s name from the Ware family, who lived in the vicinity. It was an early structure erected probably by the Wares, over which the road leading from King and Queen to Middlesex Co. passed and as far as is known stands at the same place it was originally built.”
