DescriptionThe bridge was built in 1906 by the Bridge and Building Department of the Boston and Maine Railroad. It replaced a wooden bridge built by the Sugar River Railroad in 1871 and 1872. The Sugar River line merged with the Concord and Claremont Railroad in 1873. The Concord and Claremont Railroad was especially well known for its use of the double Town/Pratt lattice truss. In 1915, there were 15 such bridges on the rail line. The bridge is named for S.K. Wright who sold the right-of-way to the Sugar River Railroad. The Wright's Bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
