The Bridge of Flowers, in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, connects the towns of Shelburne and Buckland over the Deerfield River. The seasonal footbridge was once a trolley bridge and is planted with a garden of flowers.  After enjoying the floral display, take a look at the town, its shops, restaurants, and quaint atmosphere.  In 1929, with the bridge covered in weeds, local housewife Antoinette Burnham came up with the idea of transforming the bridge into a garden. Since it was not needed as a footbridge and could not be demolished because it carried a water main between the two towns, the community agreed to her idea. The Shelburne Woman's Club sponsored the project in 1928. In 1929, eighty loads of loam and several loads of fertilizer were brought to the bridge. Several women's clubs around town raised $1,000 in 1929.  The rest is history.
