CCNS-RP Settlement Bridge 2.jpgHatches Harbor Bridge.

In 1839, a bridge was constructed across the Race Run to make it easier for the residents of the Race Point settlement and the keepers of the lighthouse to get to town. I am surmising that it was built across the narrowest point of the race, but I have yet to see any historical evidence to corroborate this, nor do I know when it was demolished — or whether it simply deteriorated into oblivion.
