Comments:
Cost $4094.04. It was built in Holland's meadow, then partially taken down and reconstructed over the river. In 1935, jacks were placed under it at the pier to remove a sag in the center. The bridge was so firmly pinned that the jacks lifted it rather than correct the sag. It was near the southern boundary of Townshend. It was named after the Holland family who owned a farm at the south end of the bridge. In its final years, it was painted bright green.
