Notes
Survey number HAER CT-176
Significance: The Village Hill Road Bridge links the towns of Columbia and Lebanon as it crosses over the Ten Mile River. Historically, it provided access to the mills of William Card, which are on the Columbia side of the river; it may also have provided a by-way between the turnpikes to the north and south. By 1869, there was a frame bridge at this site; in 1909, the frame bridge was replaced by a masonry, stone-arch bridge.
