Gibson Street Bridge

The original wooden bridge built in the 19th century was replaced with the present footbridge in 1985.  Gibson Street was originally the mill path, that led to the Nelles Mills.  The saw mill was built first and later the grist mill.  The Gibson Street Bridge crosses Forty Mile Creek at the end of Gibson Street which was formerly called the Mill Path.
