Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of the only bridge from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Mill River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

  • Destroyed by flood 1973, rebuilt.
  • Welles Lobb writes: "Bob Brugmann, my best friend from high school, was attempting to cross an older damaged version of the bridge on July 4, 1973 during a flood when he was swept to death in the raging waters. Bob was 17, a brilliant budding environmentalist, and was attempting a southbound thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail the time of his accident. Later, the Green Mountain Club (a hiking organization) rebuilt the bridge and dedicated it to my late friend."
