Concrete arch crossing of Thompson Brook on the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail (former NYNH&H Canal Line). The stone abutments likely date to the mid-19th century railroad construction, while the arch likely dates to the early 20th century. The form of the abutments suggests that the arch might have replaced a beam bridge rather than being a reinforcement of an existing stone arch.
