1. Although there are many points to access the Riverwalk (click here for map), this tour starts at the Brunswick end of the historic Androscoggin Swinging Bridge, designed and built in 1892 by John A. Roebling’s Sons, soon after they built New York’s Brooklyn Bridge.
2. The bridge was constructed to bring residents from the Topsham Heights neighborhood to the Brunswick for work in the mills, school, shopping and church. It was rehabilitated in 2006 with funding from the Maine Department of Transportation and generous support from the Topsham-Brunswick community.
