Dating back to 1870, the last surviving Burr arch truss in Massachusetts initially crossed the North River between Shattuckville and Griswoldville. It’s a survivor indeed: this bridge has been relocated and reconstructed, and was nearly left to rot. A recent overhaul included a fresh coat of red paint and a new name that honors a local Civil War captain.
