Notes
Survey number HAER NH-31
Significance: The bridge is a twin span concrete arch bridge which is notable for the high quality of its design and its masonry exterior. The bridge was built to replace a previous stone arch bridge on the site, constructed in 1835 and destroyed in the 1938 hurricane. The proceeds of a trust fund established by native poet Edna Dean Proctor made possible the construction of the new span, reminiscent of its predecessor rather than a typical steel replacement span.
