Walking Across the Bridge of Flowers
SHELBURNE FALLS, MASSACHUSETTS - Spanning the Deerfield River between the towns of Shelburne and Buckland in Western Massachusetts, the Bridge of Flowers was originally built in 1908 as a trolley bridge. As trolleys were replaced by cars and trucks, the five-arch, solid concrete bridge had served its purpose and was converted into the Bridge of Flowers in 1929 by the Shelburne Falls Women's Club. Today, the famous footbridge blossoms with flowering trees, bulbs, vines, shrubs, perennials and annuals throughout its April 1 through October 30 season.
