Stone bridges on the National Road in Maryland

I was somewhat surprised when I learned about a stone bridge, just west of Grantsville, Maryland - all I knew about in Grantsville was Casslemans River bridge. This other bridge is a bit worse for the wear, with its single arch partially collapsed, but is still quite presentable.

A couple miles down the road, a stone National Road bridge spans Puzzley Run. This bridge is on private property, but can be viewed without trespassing.

These finds led me to make a map of all the stone National Road bridges in Maryland:
