Description 

The first footbridge was built nearby of wood in 1850 by a local doctor who wanted an easier way to get to and from work, according to Killingly Historical and Genealogical Society Inc. documents. That first bridge was replaced several times. In 1890, the Riverview Association built and maintained the Riverview Bridge, which was replaced by the present metal bridge after the 1938 Hurricane. The current bridge links Water Street and Prospect Avenue and is an integral part of Killingly.
