Byram River Bridge
Posted February 24, 2020, by none (none [at] none [dot] com)

This bridge is in a very historical place. It was where Route #1 intersects the Byram River. The intersection was a high traffic area even before the USA was a country. Route #1 used to originally be an Indian footpath before turning into the Boston Post Rd. The river used to be faster and deeper before mills built dams and US Army Corps Engineers built ponds up the the river for flood control. There is a white stone carving/plaque in the middle of the bridge when walking over it. It is etched with words. It would be nice if someone can post of image of it here. I always wondered what was written on it. Adjacent to this intersection/bridge is the Lyon Homestead which is one of the oldest houses in the USA.
