Bridge of Flowers
The Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls,
Massachusetts can serve as a possible model of what
can be done in Darby. Built as a trolley bridge in
1908, the Shelburne Falls bridge was adopted by the
local garden club and has now become a regional
attraction and a focus of civic pride, bringing in some
15,000 visitors per year to a rural hill-town of 2000
people. Darby's bridge, being an easy trolley ride
away from Philadelphia, can do the same.
