Notes

Building/structure dates: 1917 initial construction
Significance: The bridge is believed to be the sole surviving example of an I-beam through bridge with transverse jack arches extant in New Hampshire. Constructed in 1917. The bridge is the last example of a popular bridge form built widely throughout the state, an example of what United Construction Company called "a standard two-beam girder bridge." The structure is one of three bridges erected in Raymond in 1917 by the United Construction Company of Albany, New York...
