Hemlock Bridge, Spanning Maple Spring Brook on West Sargent Mountain Carriage Road, Northeast Harbor, Hancock County, ME
Significance: One of only two Gothic-arched bridges on the Rockefeller carriage road system, Hemlock Bridge is one of eight major stone bridges on the "Around-the-Mountain" carriage road loop. The pointed arch design was chosen for its harmony with the pointed hemlock trees which surround the site. Like several of the other spans, Hemlock Bridge serves as a viewing platform, offering a splendid vista of Somes Sound and the Western Mountain mass.
