Broad Run Bridge & Tollhouse
Broad Run Bridge & Tollhouse
Photograph by James W. Bailey Immediately south of the modern-day bridge over Broad Run in Loudoun County at the intersection of Route 7 and Route 28 is a little noticed gem of history: The Broad Run Tollhouse and the remains of the Broad Run Bridge. It you drive slowly over the bridge - heading from west to east - and look to your right you'll catch a glimpse of the slate roof of the historic Broad Run Tollhouse. No doubt few of the thousands of suburban communters who regularly travel along Route 7 have probably never notice this historic structure. Even fewer are probably aware of the colorful history of this place. History of Stone Bridge and Tollhouse On February 3, 1809, the Virginia General Assembly passed an Act Incorporating the Leesburg Turnpike Company for the purpose of building a road from Leesburg to the Little River Turnpike at Alexandria or for at least 10 miles in that direction. The road, which was to be fifty feet wide, was to be paved for only eighteen feet of its width. The road, which roughly followed the route of an earlier Indian trail, was used to roll large wooden barrels or hogsheads filled with tobacco from Leesburg to the docks in Alexandria. Work on the Leesburg Pike started in 1816 and progressed slowly, but by 1822 the road extended fourteen miles to Dranesville. There is a stone with an 1820 date on the Broad Run Bridge, indicating it was built around that time. At least three successive wooden bridges had been erected over the creek between 1771 and 1803 but all three had washed away. Broad Run is a tributary of the Potomac River and subject to occasional flooding. The stone bridge was in use until 1949 when it was replaced with a concrete and steel bridge. The original old stone bridge had two 6-foot spans that were begun in 1818. The builders quarried large sandstone blocks from the Blue Ridge Mountains and transported them to the bridge site. State engineers involved in the bridge replacement project said the old stone bridge "is nearly perfect from an engineering standpoint and demonstrates remarkable ingenuity on the part of the original builders." Marks from the hand chisels used in the construction were still visible on the stones. Tolls on the bridge were based on the type of vehicle. "For coach or any other riding carriage, one shilling; a two wheel chair or chaise 8 pence; a loaded or unloaded wagon, one shilling; a cart, 8 pence." By the mid-1830s, the Leesburg Turnpike Company was in debt due to decreased tolls and increases in the cost of repairs. The September 1843 flood, which washed away the Goose Creek bridge, and completion of the Chesapeake and Ohio canal combined to doom the company. At the beginning of the Civil War, the toll road concept was abandoned. Broad Run Bridge and Tollhouse are probably the only extant combination remaining in Virginia, although there are several other stone bridges. Description of Broad Run Bridge and Tollhouse Note: The bridge was severely damaged during the 1972 flood. The following describes what the bridge looked like before that. The bridge itself consists of a double span of arches supported by a central pier and massive abutments on either bank. Conical buttressing flanks the arches and squared-off buttresses support the stone walls on land. The original one-story, three-bay tollhouse structure was later enlarged by three wings but the old walls are relatively intact. The asphalt-covered roadway rises at the center of the bridge span and the low parapet walls which line the roadway connect to the south side of the stone tollhouse at the western end of the bridge.

Run for the Roses 2009, derby day, ladies and their hats
Andrea, Jessica, and Angie show off their derby dresses and, of course, HATS at a derby charity event in Pensacola, Florida. Jessica ended up winning "Best of Show" for her delicious and stylized classic black hat. It was HUGE! The Leaning Post Ranch, a Molino facility that provides equine assisted activities and therapeutic riding to individuals with disabilities and at-risk youth, will present the "Run for the Roses" Kentucky Derby Day fundraiser. The event, taking place at The Palafox Wharf in downtown Pensacola, will feature live music, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, a live and silent auction and a chance to pick the winners of this year's Derby races. Attendees are asked to wear "Derby attire," which includes fanciful hats for the ladies. Organizers have high hopes for the event. "This is our first big fundraiser, so we're very excited," said Angela McMahan, vice president of the Leaning Post Ranch board of directors. "We're hoping the community comes out and supports it, so this can become an annual event." The fundraiser will help offset the $90,000 annual operating cost of the non-profit organization, which is run entirely by volunteers. "The economy has really taken a bite out of our budget," said Jacqui O'Connell, board president. "Last year, the cost of gas discouraged a lot of parents from driving out to Molino. This year, school budget cuts mean we aren't seeing as many field trips. Even the cost of hay has gone up." O'Connell said that it is impossible to put a price on what the Leaning Post Ranch offers to its clients, who range in all ages and abilities. Her 20-year-old son, Ryan, who has autism, has been riding at the ranch for six years. "From the moment he started riding, he was like a different person. There was an instant connection with the horse," she said. "Riding has helped Ryan with his confidence and focus. "Today, he's attending (Pensacola Junior College). He's come a long way." The program, started in 1992 by Fran and Newman Gersin, facilitates around 300 equine "encounters" a year, including private and group lessons. Disabled participants, assisted by riding instructors, therapists and volunteers, ride the horses to help develop self-awareness, self-confidence and concentration. Physically, the riding strengthens and relaxes muscles, improves posture and balance, and increases joint mobility. "For those children who can't walk, the physical sensation of the horse walking under them can be a very positive experience," said Joyce Gill, a Leaning Post Ranch volunteer and board secretary. "Their faces just light up when they're riding."
