Cribstone Bridge - Harpswell, Maine by 


This is a unique bridge which connects Orr’s and Bailey’s Island in Harpswell, Maine.
The bridge is said to be one of a kind in the world. It was built in 1927 of 10,00 tons of Maine granite, and is held together by gravity alone. Its “Crib-like” construction allows the water to flow flow through so there is little chance of damage from the ebb and flow of the tides, or from ice floes in the winter.
The bridge was built by Llewelyn N Edwards, is 1150 ft long (350.52 meters), and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
