Ball's Historic Bridge

"The bridge that love built" is said to have been built by an engineer who fell in love with one of the Ball daughters while he was working on the bridge at the mouth of the Maitland River. The engineer then built Ball's bridge in 1885 to allow his beloved to cross the river more easily and the two were consequently married. The double span, iron truss bridge is a rare example of early construction prowess in Ontario and it presides over a picnic area beside the tranquil Maitland River, which is also a canoe launch and a good fishing spot. The Little Lakes Road crosses the bridge to follow a scenic, winding route around some kettle lakes between Auburn and Benmiller.
