What’s a “Selectman”, I hear you say? And why do they need a bridge? Since I asked the questions, I’ll give you brief answers without going into a lot of details. A Selectman is a local town government official in the New England area. The bridge across the mill stream was constructed as a memorial much later than the small white building. They both look like they could be the same vintage but the bridge is only about 40 years old while the building was built 240 years ago.
This was a lovely Autumn day on Mt. Desert Island in Maine near Acadia National Park.
