A few of the 10 bridges crossing the Delaware River between Sullivan County and Pennsylvania are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. None are more historic than the unusually-shaped Roebling Aqueduct, built in 1847 to carry the Delaware and Hudson Canal over the river. Today it still carries vehicle and foot traffic; it's been designated a National Historic Engineering Landmark as the oldest wire suspension bridge in continuous use in the U.S. Designer John Roebling applied what he learned here to one of his later projects, the Brooklyn Bridge. Even if you don't usually go out of your way to see historic bridges, this one is worth your time. It's managed by the National Park Service as part of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River, and worth the detour.
