1. Hadley Bow Bridge Marker
Inscription.  The Hadley "Bow Bridge, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977, was constructed in 1885 atop masonry-built foundations to replace a burned 1813 timber covered bridge The Bow Bridge is an example of a lenticular or lens-shaped truss and is one of only two or three of the "half-through" or "semi-deck" variety. The bridge is unique because the bridge deck is located at the middle of trusses either at the top or bottom of the trusses. The Bow Bridge is a stunning example of late-nineteenth century, early-American bridge building and engineering ingenuity. The bridge was permanently closed to all traffic in 1983, effectively dividing the Town of Hadley in half. What you see before you today is the original Hadley Bow Bridge, painstakingly restored while maintaining its striking architectural beauty within the magnificent Sacandaga River valley
