Title:
New Bridge Over Conn. River Looking Into New Hampshire from Vermont
Town:
Rockingham
County:
Windham
State:
Vermont
Date:
2000-08-20
Description:
The modern image shows the bridge that replaced the bridge from the historic image. The bridge in the recent photograph was built in 1930. The new bridge is much more advanced in structure compared to the previous bridge. There are two arching supports under the bridge and in the middle of it there is a concrete structure that supports the middle. The large tower is gone. Street light have been added to the landscape around the buildings on the far side of the river. The hill in the background of the photograph is still forested. John Adams writes on 2013-10-08: This is the Vilas bridge. It was closed to traffic several years ago. It connects Bellows Falls to Walpole NH on Rte. 12. John Adams writes on 2013-12-31: In Winchendon MA about 50 miles south of this area, where this road goes about 25 miles south of Keene NH there is a sign that is visible going north on Rte. 12 from Ashburnham or Gardner which are neighboring communities in that North Central Ma community. I resided in that town in my late teens. US 202 goes through Winchendon as well. It was known for Toy horse manufacturing back in the day. The sign says Bellows Falls VT. It made me think of home when I looked at it many years ago.

Title:
Covered Toll Bridge Over Connecticut River Looking into New Hampshire
Town:
Rockingham
County:
Windham
State:
Vermont
Date:
1923 - 1930
Description:
Sam Taber (wq1962005) writes in 2005-1: The historic image shows a very long covered bridge that connects Vermont and New Hampshire over the Connecticut River. The first bridge built here in 1785, lasted until it was replaced by this bridge in 1840. The bridge is used as a toll bridge and is supported in the middle by a stacked stone abutment. Posted on the front of the bridge is a sign that reads, "Danger!! Toll bridge is unsafe to carry a load of more than four tons. [?] using this bridge do so at their own risk." Wooden guard fences extend out from the bridge in the left foreground of the photograph. There is a brick building that serves as the Green Mountain Railroad Building and a grain (?) tower on the far side of the river. There is a forested hill in the background of the photograph. A handwritten inscription in the lower left corner of the photograph reads, "Old Toll Bridge, Bellows Fall, Vermont, 1840. Scott J. Whitney writes on 2012-02-04: This image was taken sometime between 1923 and 1930 but very likely just before construction of the new Vilas bridge. The tall structure on the far side of the river was the coal tower for fueling locomotives.
