Green River Covered Bridge, Greenfield, MA

Down river, not too far from the Green River Covered Bridge in Guilford, VT is the Green River Covered Bridge in Greenfield, MA. This bridge was reconstructed in 1972 and is closed to road traffic. It makes a very bucolic setting. Looking at the river we can pretty much guess why it is called the Green River.

A little historical trivia reminding us that life was not without stress in the early 18th century.

There was a massacre in Vermont? They sure were uncivilized back in the day! I wonder how old Eunice was when she died?

Wonderful old bridge. Sorry to see the graffiti though.

A sad bit of history there but your post was very interesting and I loved the photo of the covered bridge. I enjoy walking through them. They are so well made and are a work of art on the inside how they are constructed.

Beautiful covered bridge over amazingly green water. We love the history, albeit sad.

I love covered bridges. We have about 5 of them here in California.

I love covered bridges. They always make me think of times gone by. And I believe every single one of these bridges left standing in America should be restored. Times gone by are part of who we are. Thank you Steve for posting this. Carol
