Excerpt from "Top Story In Contest Tells Of Cuppett Bridge" - The Bedford Gazette, Friday May 13, 1966 - by Eva Cuppett Worrell

 

The land was once held by Indians of the Shawnee Tribe with some of the Delawares who called themselves the Lenni Lenape or original people, actually the original people had been part of the tribe of the "Allegewi" who roamed these hills long before recorded history.

They gave their name forever to the mountain range known to us as Allegheny Mountain. It lies directly west of Cuppett Bridge. On the fields surrounding the bridge have been found all kinds of Indian Relics, a lot of them are now owned by W.C. Cuppett family.
