A Farm with Its Own Suspension Bridge

In rural Carroll County, Maryland, there is an abandoned farm with a most unusual feature – a pedestrian suspension bridge that connects two clusters of farm buildings located on adjoining hills. The ruins of the bridge sit atop tapered stone pillars almost twenty feet high. The first three photos here show the bridge leading to a large barn and its cluster of outbuildings. There is a substantial stone house a ways to the left of the barn. The fourth photo is taken from the opposite direction, showing the bridge connecting to another house.

The remaining photos are closer looks at some of the buildings on the farm, which must have been pretty impressive in its day. I don’t know if this place was really called Skyway Farm, but that would certainly have been an apt name for it.
