The Rockville Bridge, at the time of its completion in 1902, was, and still remains, the longest stone masonry arch railroad viaduct in the world.[1] Constructed between 1900 - 1902 by the Pennsylvania Railroad, it has forty-eight 70-foot spans, for a total length of 3,820 ft. The bridge crosses the Susquehanna River about 5 miles north of Harrisburg, PA. The eastern end is in Rockville and the western end is just south of Marysville.

Shank's Mare is located on the Susquehanna River just a short drive from the Olde Square Inn.  I learned to kayak from these folks and purchased my equipment from them.  They take you to the hidden gems within our area and the insurmountable amount of history within our area.  Indians, nature, the waterways, are just a few of their enjoyable learning  adventures .

Canoe the Susquehanna River Water Trail, Allegheny Mountains, Pennsylvania  One of the newest national recreation water trails in the country, the West Branch Susquehanna River Water Trail snakes for 228 miles through the oak, cherry, and maple hardwood forests of the Allegheny Mountains and into the habitat of the Northeast’s largest elk herd. It’s seriously wild territory, but it’s located smack in the center of Pennsylvania, within driving distance of the state’s major cities.
