The Bridge over the Souhegan West Branch

In 2010 the Smithville bridge located at the end of Goen Road was replaced. A rusted culvert was removed and the bridge was rebuilt with large preformed concrete tunnels. The bridge that predated that was constructed of wood. I discovered a photo that showed something else quite interesting.

At that time the house on the right had a full porch. There is an extra building on the left side that might have been a fire station.

A blend of new and old
