Long Span Bridge on Long Lake


       In order to accommodate the steamboats and the increasing population, the people had to look at the old structures put in place many years before. One structure, the float bridge, was rotting and hazardous, but the town refused to appropriate money to build a new one. After several accidents on the bridge, and Isaac Robinson suing the town because his horse fell through it and drowned, they shut the structure down, and Frank Burch ran a ferry across the lake.
