Windsor crossings

Alderman School bridge gave students a short-cut to class


Although long gone, the Alderman School bridge has been recognized by the World Guide to Covered Bridges and assigned bridge number 35-04-41. And while only several images of this once vibrant corner of Windsor Township have survived, the historical society recently acquired a significant piece of history from that era. The old bell that once rang from the top of the Alderman Schoolhouse and echoed through the Phelps Creek Valley is part of the collection and will be displayed in the future.
