Description 

This bridge is located between the abandoned L.W. Packard Mill buildings in Ashland. I included photographs Of the mill buildings over the river as well. The original Mill was built in 1840. Luther Packard purchased it in 1916 and the company has been a world leader in the textile industry for much of its existence. Dimensions are estimates.
