Caption

Water plays a significant role in human culture. The Conococheague Creek was used by Native Americans as a means of transportation and as a source of food (by fishing). As settlers moved into the area the rapid water became a means to grind grain. On the other side of the pictured bridge are the rock foundations of the old mill. The mill not only provided flour and grain, but also became a local gathering place for social events - held on a small flat island close to the mill. Hence the name of the road - Social Island Road. To provide safe and secure transportation over the creek, the stone bridge was built. This one lane bridge is still in use today. I drive over it every day on the way to work. I have also canoed this section of the Conococheague - just as the Indians did many years ago. Water plays a very important role in our human culture, and is a very signficant part of God's provision in order for man to live here on planet earth.
