The Bridges of Maudslay

Learn about the bridges of Maudslay State Park at this FREE Tour in Newburyport.

Maudslay State Park invites you to take a snapshot look at the three stone bridges erected by the Moseleys – and their history. The bridges are architectural wonders, still functional after many years of use.

Where did materials originate from?
