If you follow my work, you may notice that one place that shows up often in my work is the Casselman River Bridge. The river is a tributary of the Youghiogheny River. There is a lot of history surrounding the river and bridge.
The historic bridge was built in the early 1800s as part of the National Road and the area is now known formally as Casselman River Bridge State Park. This location is also known as Little Crossings. Located east of Grantsville near Spruce Forest Artisan Village, it’s a popular place with fly fisherman. Sightseers traveling along Route 40 often visit to take a look around.

Depending on which part of the lake you’re familiar with, you might recognize Corner Store. A family store and gas station, known as Schmidt’s Service Station, used to sit at the corner of Turkey Neck Road and 135 near the southern end of Deep Creek Lake. At one time, we could stop in for a loaf of bread, eggs or other items when passing by. Corner Store is included in the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County Gallery.
