Known as the place where "the shot heard around the world" initiated the American Revolution, the site of the Old North Bridge (as it is also known) is probably more historic than the bridge itself. The Concord River has seen a total of eight bridges at or near this juncture. The first bridge was probably built around 1654, soon after Concord was settled in 1635. Floods and deterioration destroyed the subsequent versions and the bridge site was moved a few hundred yards away. The latest version seen today was built in 2005. (Submitted by Kristina Becvar)
