Some Mainers Haven’t Heard Of The Androscoggin Bridge, A Historic Wooden Swinging Bridge In Vacationland
If you’ve ever driven on US-1 in Topsham, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the curious bridge over the Androscoggin River. It might seem randomly placed, but it actually served an important purpose back in 1892 when it was built. In fact, back then many folks in the area could credit the bridge with their ability to make money. Today, it’s a fun trip over a piece of history.
