This bridge is located in the town of Jackson in Jackson Village. It carries Village Road over the Ellis River. The bridge was built in 1876 by Charles Austin Broughton and his son Frank. The covered portion of the bridge is 121'-1" long and the clear span of 103'-0" between abutments. The bridge width is 26'-5", the roadway width is 16'-0". The vertical clearance is 12'-3".
