Brief History Of The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station

The art gallery, contrary to popular belief, was built in 1877 and used to show dramas instead of ballets. The iconic Haddam Swingbridge connects the historical site and the ceremony venue. The bridge was recognized in the 1960s for its groundbreaking construction and architecture, which helped to modernize modes of transportation.
