McIndoes Falls Road Bridge, Monroe

Connecticut River Bridge

blank dot

The McIndoes Falls Road Bridge, also known as the Lyman Toll Bridge, is a historic structure that once spanned the Connecticut River, connecting McIndoe Falls, Vermont, and Monroe, New Hampshire. Built in 1834 by the Passumpsic Turnpike Company and Peter Paddleford, it served as a crucial transportation link between the two states. The bridge was made free in 1924 and ownership was transferred to the town of Monroe in 1925. To strengthen the bridge, wooden arches were added in 1896 and the center pier was reinforced in 1927. Despite being in fine condition, it was dismantled in September 1930 to make way for a new dam across the river. The bridge was sold to Julius Long, who repurposed it into a barn. The 1930 bridge, still standing, is a Parker through truss and was built in 1930 by the American Bridge Company.
