“Places in North Adams, MA”
Its natural bridge, which spans Hudson's Brook, was formed by glacial melt by 11,000 BCE, from 550 million year old bedrock. Formerly the site of a marble quarry (1810-1947) and privately-owned tourist attraction (1950-1983), the site became a state park in 1985. The arch and associated quarry have long attracted attention from hikers, including Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1838, who wrote of it (among other local features) in his An American Notebook.
Great stop, beautiful park. Naturally formed marble arch/bridge and man made marble dam, the only one in North America. Great photo opportunities. It was a beautiful fall day when we were there and there were several professional photographers doing photo shoots. Nice clean restrooms. Costs $5 to park.
