Potomac Creen flows 16.7 miles through King George and Stafford counties in Virginia. A 400-foot bridge was constructed across the creek to carry the railroad between Richmond and Washington, D.C. During the Civil War, it carried both Union and Confederate soldiers. Today, the stone blocks of the south abutment are all that remain.
