Our Forever Bridge

 

Deer Island Elementary School, grade 3, 2013/20014

 

Life for Deer Island residents changed in a big way when the big green bridge was built in 1938. For one thing, the circus didn't have to come over by boat! Students learned about the changes from islanders who were there.
