The Lehigh Water Gap Chain Bridge Toll House and East Bridge Abutment has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places as of August 2020. The toll house and the accompanying chain bridge (no longer surviving) were constructed circa 1826 across the Lehigh River in upper Northampton and Lehigh Counties at what was called Weider’s Crossing about ½ mile below the Lehigh Gap proper. Despite the removal the chain bridge itself in 1933, the toll house continues to exist largely intact along with the east abutment of the chain bridge.
