History

The Building of the Arrigoni Bridge

The following pictures and excerpts were taken from a commemorative booklet dated August 6, 1938, honoring the completion of the Arrigoni Bridge. The title of the booklet was The Middletown-Portland Bridge. While the photos give a wonderful visual into the past, the words become an integral part of the overall experience, mentioning such things as "motor cars," to differentiate them from cars that were pulled by horse. The booklet speaks more about Middlesex County than the actual building of the Arrigoni Bridge. Our thanks to Janice Cross, who brought this commemorative to our attention.
