Stone Seat Bridge

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104, United States

Created By: PocketSights


This medieval style bridge was designed by John Morris in the early 20th century. Made of Wissahickon schist, the stone bridge has seats to encourage people to linger and enjoy the sights and sounds of the stream. In fact, riffles, which are miniature waterfalls, were intentionally built to increase the interplay of sound and light in the stream.

Let's see your best shot. Submit a photo of the Stone Seat Bridge during your visit.
