Here at the Town Office we have been trying to improve the filing system. I was looking through a folder full of information regarding the Floating Bridge and I found a copy of the original application for the inclusion of the Bridge in the National Register of Historic Places.
Inclusion in the Register was a key element in the re-construction of the bridge as a floating bridge and not just another bridge.
I thought I would check to see when the application was accepted so I could add it to the files. What I found surprised me so I thought I would share.
If you click here, you can see the full application the Town of Brookfield sent to Washington with each page stamped as recieved by the National Register. On page 9 you will see the signature block where the Bridge was added to the register on 28 March 1974.
