The Ashland Mill was severely damaged by arson in March, 1994, and was demolished shortly after. Veteran's Memorial Park now occupies the area and the bridge was planned to remain in place after a rehab which never occurred. By 1999 the bridge was deemed unsafe and closed. With no grant money forthcoming, bridge was removed and stored in a parking lot near the town hall.
The bridge was removed from the National Register of Historic Places on February 2, 2016.
