The Bridge Walk In Maine That Will Make Your Stomach Drop

Each state in America offers its own special history. Of course, we think the stories and tales of the past here in Maine are the most interesting, but perhaps we have just a bit of bias. One of the pieces of Maine’s past that we love most involves the mill towns. Today we’re featuring a bridge that acted as an important link between two towns, one with a mill and one where mill workers lived. Take a walk across to imagine what life was like back then, but beware of the adventure that awaits while you cross!

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: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

The Androscoggin Swinging Bridge is open to be crossed year-round, but you’ll want to be a bit cautious about crossing when it’s windy or icy. You can learn more about it here.

If you love a bridge that offers some added fun, head to York for another of our favorites. There’s no other bridge in American quite like this wiggly bridge in York, Maine!
