Paper Mill Village Bridge
Wallomsac River by the Paper Mill Village Bridge
The Paper Mill Village Bridge was originally named for a 1790 paper mill in Vermont. It was built by the son of Benjamin Sears, the man who built the Silk Bridge.
The Henry Bridge was named for Elnathan Henry who bought the land from James Breckenridge and constructed the Henry House in 1769. The Henry House operates today as a Bed & Breakfast Inn and is located directly across from the bridge. The Henry Bridge spans the Wallomsac River. The original bridge was constructed in 1840. In 1989 a complete restructuring was done by Blow and Cote, Inc.
