Description
This historical bridge built in 1858, is a Town Lattice Truss. It crosses the Battenkill in Eagleville, NY just a few miles from the Vermont border. It has a single span bridge, 101 feet long. This bridge narrowly escaped destruction in 1977 when an abutment was undermined in high water and dumped one end into the kill. It was quickly hoisted back in place on a temporary foundation.
