Along comes a truck, far above the weight limit of the little bridge built in 1890, and down she went! Stories such as these are sad for we historians. I tried to locate the bridge using aerial maps, but couldn't see where Doctors Creek crossed Tattletown Road. Can any area resident set me straight. It is assumed that the creek was diverted underground, (?)
Along time ago, Doctor's Creek was stocked with trout, and a few of us kids used to bike out there with night crawlers and a spinning rod to catch us some.
Tattletown Road is still there. Take RTE 524 (the Yardville Allentown Road) towards Allentown. The next right after the turnpike overpass is a road that heads south towards Old York Road. It may have been a dirt road back then. (For Burg historians, the Mr. and Mrs Gliba, the owners of the bar on S. Clinton, built a home on the right just before the Turnpike overpass after their retirement.)
Doctor's Creek runs roughly parallel to Old York Road. Is it "trout water"? Heck no, but who cared? We were out and about and having a great time.
