of the town of Medford to build one-half of the bridge.
Two hundred pounds old tenor was raised to pay for it.
May 12, 1760, the Selectmen were chosen a committee to divide the bridge with the town of Charlestown.
From this vote it seems that the bridge was, up to that time, under the joint charge of these towns, and that it was now deemed desirable that each town should care for that portion within its limits.
This bridge has been several times rebuilt; it assumed its present shape in 1892; its care and maintenance is now a charge to the city of Medford and the town of Arlington.
Gravelly bridge is located in Salem street over Gravelly creek, and as the flow of the tide at that point was sufficient to prevent the passage of teams at high water it is more than probable that the first bridge over this creek must have been built in the early days of the settlement of the town.
