Huddlestone Arch

Huddlestone Arch

Inside the quiet green wilderness of the North Woods is a marvel of engineering: Huddlestone Arch. The stone arch is made entirely of enormous, uncut boulders weighing up to 100 tons.

The ingenious 1866 design uses physics instead of binding materials like mortar to keep the bridge in place. The key is in gravity and pressure, proven powerful forces. The resulting arch is so sturdy that it supports traffic traveling over the Loch on the East Drive.
