Red Mills Bridge

Freeville, New York 13068, United States

Created By: Altered Landscapes / Preserved Landscapes



This bridge is extremely rare, a unique example of a continuous multi-span pony truss structure, the only one of its kind in the state of New York. Built over Fall Creek in 1887 by the Groton Bridge Company of Groton NY, this historic bridge is scheduled to be replaced in 2016, despite the efforts of the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). Local business and emergency vehicles require a more substantial, two-lane bridge in this location, and construction has already been delayed for more than a decade while the SHPO has attempted to secure funding to have this bridge preserved or moved.
