The first bridge at this location was completed in 1806 by the Cheshire Bridge Co.[4] and was described as a Town lattice covered toll bridge, a wooden covered bridge. In 1897 the bridge was purchased by the Springfield Electric Railway.

In 1906 the old bridge was replaced by the Iron Bridge Co., at a cost of US$65,000 (US$2,120,000 with inflation[1]).[5] It was a three-span steel Pratt truss bridge, which had a 600-foot (180 m) span and a 20-foot (6.1 m)-wide roadway. Vehicles ran both ways, and also freight and passenger cars. In 1930 the bridge was replaced by the McClintic-Marshall Co. of Pittsburgh, PA at a cost of US$225,000 (US$3,940,000 with inflation[1]).[6] It is a three-span Pennsylvania truss that is 489 feet (149 m) feet long.

The bridge was purchased by the state of New Hampshire in 1992. Tolls were collected until 2001.[7]
