From Historic Marker:
“The Marble Works Memorial Bridge was constructed and generously donated by the Marble Works Partnership to the citizens of the town of Middlebury for their use and enjoyment.
The bridge is dedicated to the memory of the mechanics of Middlebury who built and operated the mills and factories which, from 1774 to 1966, drew their power from Middlebury Falls: an important economic resource then, an irreplaceable natural resource for generations to come.
The Marble Works Partnership especially thanks Central Vermont Public Service Corporation, the Middlebury Board of Selectmen, the Middlebury Town Manager, and North Hollow Construction Company for their cooperation.
