Greenbanks Hollow Bridge crosses Joe's Brook just upstream of a ruined dam. Ghostlike in low light, this white-painted span sparkles in the sun.

The Covered Spans of Yesteryear website provides the following background information: "According to Herbert Wheaton Congdon¹, this bridge was originally uncovered and the roof was added later. Around 1970, a concrete pier and steel beams were added under the deck. The bridge was rebuilt in 2002."
