Bridge is located in Unionville, a village in the town of Farmington. There have been three bridges at this site. The first was a two-span Howe truss covered bridge built in 1859. This was replaced in 1922 with a steel pony truss which succumbed to the Great Hurricane of 1938. The present bridge, built in 1939, was submerged during the August 1955 flooding but has survived.
