Whimsical Windows - Bridge & Monument

Toby hosts the fun Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors, and we look at interesting architectural detail on our travels. Today it is the castle like monument sitting upon the Memorial Bridge spanning the Wepawaug River in downtown Milford CT. It was built in 1889 at the site of the town's first mill upon the river. As it was built for the 250th anniversary the year it opened, we can assume the mill was far older. The other shot was taken from inside a restaurant (with reflections) that is perched just downstream of the monument. As modern as Milford looks in this era, the fact that it was incorporated in 1639 is amazing...

That's fantastic! It doesn't look that different from the stonework that I posted this week :)
