The History Of This Abandoned Bridge In Maine Might Surprise You

If you’ve driven through Portland, or spent any time near the Eastern Prom, you’re probably familiar with the hulking structure of wood and metal that sits beside the B&M Bean Factory. The swing bridge sitting in the Back Cove, with its train tracks to nowhere raises lots of questions. What was it used for? And why was it left in its current (and permanent) open position? We thought maybe others had these same questions, so we did a bit of research and found the most incredible aerial video!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
