Significance: Bartlett's Bridge is a well-preserved, representative example of a common, rural, nineteenth-century masonry bridge type found in New England. The notable details are the stone parapet with projecting coping course, the accentuated keystone, and the dressed face ring voussoirs. The engineer, Charles A. Allen, was city engineer of Worcester at the time the bridge was constructed, and was well-known in New England for his work on public water and sewer system projects.
