The Downsville Bridge was completely refurbished a few years ago. Originally built in 1854 by Robert Murray, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as of April 29, 1999. Some local people recently donated time and money to construct a pleasant park by the bridge for all to enjoy while visiting. There is much local pride in this bridge and some local shops offer mementos of your visit.
This bridge is a single span of 174 feet of Long & Queenpost truss over the East Branch of the Delaware River.
Most pictures are of the "old" bridge before reconstruction. We will add more pictures of the beautiful job they did during reconstruction.
Directions to the bridge:
The bridge is located on Bridge Street within the Village of Downsville (Town of Colchester) 0.1 mile off State Route 30 at the east end of the Village.
