Bridge of Flowers

It's hard to believe that this little piece of floral heaven used to be a local eyesore. Built in 1908, the bridge ceased to be a route of commerce in 1927. Engineering and economic constraints prevented the city government from destroying it. A resident of Shelburne Falls, Antoinette Burnham, came up with an idea to turn it into a pleasure garden. In 1929, the local Women's Club sponsored turning this vision into reality. Of course the best time of year to see the beautiful array of colors would be late spring to early fall.
