About the year 1797 a toll bridge was begun in Easton. A freshet washed the first structure from its foundations during construction, and in 1805 the Easton Delaware Bridge Company, under authorization from the State of Pennsylvania, raised by lottery a fund with which they erected a bridge. This bridge was a covered wooden arch designed and built by the pioneer bridge builder, Timothy Palmer.
