Comments:
Built after the great flood of 1869 that took out every bridge in Grafton. Per the Springfield Reporter, August 1, 1941, "CAMBRIDGEPORT Work on the new bridge is well under way. The covered bridge has been taken down and the power shovel is making place for new abutments." It was replaced with a concrete structure.
