Notes
Survey number HAER NH-24
Significance: The bridge is a representative example of a riveted steel Warren deck truss railway bridge, typical of early 20th century bridge technology. The bridge lies at the heart of Claremont's Lower Village National Register Historic District. The bridge was an important link in Claremont's electrified street rail service. The line moved passengers and freight between West Claremont, Claremont, and the main line of the Boston and Maine railroad at Claremont Junction during the first half of the 20th century.
