Bridge of Flowers
Shelburne Falls, MA 01370
A derelict bridge from the early 20th Century has been transformed into a scenic one known as, Bridge of Flowers. Located in the heart of Shelburne Falls, connecting Water Street in the east to State Street in the west over the Deerfield River, this structure was once used as a trolley bridge. After it went into disuse in 1927, management of the bridge was taken over by the Shelburne Falls Women’s Club and work on the improvement of the bridge began in 1929. In 1983, a restoration project gave this bridge a more beautiful look. From April to October, the bridge is covered in a variety of flowers, ranging across Dahlias, Crocosmia, Daylillies, Echinaceas, Mystic Illusion and many more, that makes it a vibrant chrome-filled attraction.
