Inscription. English settler John Taylor established a gristmill c. 1760 approximately 0.7 miles downstream on Taylor's Mill Road. The mill supplied flour to American troops during the Revolutionary War and continued to operate into the early 20th century. This bridge, erected in 2006, replaces an iron truss span built by the American Bridge Company in 1901. The earlier bridge was part of the Taylor's Mill Historic District, whic includes the remaining mill ruins, miller's house, and millrace.
