Beavercreek was once home to four covered bridges, all of which are now gone.  But nearby is a beautifully restored example of what was!

Phil Hubbell Avenue was the former connector where Shakertown Road ran into town, instead of its current merge into U.S. Route 35.  Between the last house on the left and the adjacent parking lot ran the Dayton Xenia & Ironton rail line – the Traction.  This line ran adjacent to the others east and west of town, but took a wide berth to the south in town, presumably to help allow it to pass when freight cars were loading and unloading at the grain elevator.  

At last check, one of the concrete abutments was still visible in the creek bed from the bikeway west of town.
