Historic Appleton: bridge to the village
This view of Appleton Village looking east was taken from the lawn of the Fergus McLain House on Sennebec Road after one of the original wooden spans of the bridge was replaced by steel. The remains of the dam, apparently washed away, lie below and to the right of the bridge. At left are the original Pease Store and Riverside Hall behind it, with the Keller house and Union Meeting House above and beyond. The Captain Weed house and barn lie beyond the bridge, with Valley House Hotel beyond. The only one of these structures still standing is Union Meeting House, preserved by Appleton Historical Society.
