This is an early 20th-century view of the Milanville Bridge, with Milton Skinner’s sawmill in the foreground. Skinner’s Milanville Bridge Company paid J.P. Morgan’s American Bridge Company $14,000 to erect the bridge. The view is upriver. 

The extraordinary Milanville Bridge

My favorite place in the Upper Delaware Valley is a picturesque eddy of flat water above Skinners Falls, known since the 1870s as the “Milanville Eddy.” Here log rafts were pegged together starting in Colonial times, and river men paused to gauge water levels before confronting Skinners Falls.

In the blink of an eye

I’m not sure if I’m clinically depressed, self obsessed, or simply mad as a hatter, but my mind never stops whirring, and it’s difficult getting to sleep these days. When attempting to explain how I feel to my shrink—or what friends I have left—I stutter and stammer, seeking the right words. “It’s an existential crisis,” I said to a confidant.
