In the late eighteenth century, a ferry and a wooden bridge were the ways of crossing the Green River at this site between Deerfield and Greenfield, Massachusetts. By the early twentieth century, three bridges connected the two towns. A covered wooden bridge was for foot traffic, carriages, and the small number of motor vehicles; a second was for the electric railway or trolley; and the third was for the railroad.
