Brookfield Floating Bridge
12 íbúar mæla með
There are only two floating bridges in the US. One is located here in Brookfield.
The floating bridge is just 1.1 miles from the cottage and is a very unique and historic local site. It is a popular spot for fishing, swimming and picnicking in the tiny "Hippo Park" on its shores. Closed to vehicle traffic from early November to spring. But you can still walk out on it in winter.
This bridge actually floats on the water with many barrels underneath. Years ago the bridge would take on 3-4" of water each time a car crossed! Now, because of updates even with the weight, a car won't budge it!
