Putnam Memorial Bridge
Posted January 27, 2010, by Dolly Petrin (dolorespetrin [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

I would like information on how much the bridge cost to build and about the war placks that were put there? And also why this bridge is being neglected? Please I have been trying to get information on this bridge for 5 years. Hope someone can help me. Thank you Dolly Petrin
