Shelburne Falls, MA, a typical small New England riverside town with many shops and cafes and little tucked in places of interest.
On-street parking was available along the main street and the bridge was a short walk. Crossing over the truss bridge you have a good view of the older trolley bridge, built in 1908 and abandoned in 1928 when the trolley stopped running.You see lots of greenery from the truss bridge and have to actually get on the Bridge of Flowers to see that the well-loved and tended spot has plenty of color.
A head gardener and assistants keep it in continuous bloom throughout the seasons.
Also of interest in Shelburne Falls are some glacial pot holes which are easily viewed where the falls have been rerouted and are a short 2 block walk from the bridge.
Also of interest is this notice of a Native American Fishing Treaty that preserves peaceful hunting and fishing within one days journey of the site.
