Uncle Tim’s Bridge In Wellfleet On Cape Cod.

We’ve driven by this bridge on the way into Wellfleet hundreds of times but never knew you could walk over it. It is a really cool bridge that leads to a little island with hiking trails and lots of benches to enjoy the beautiful views of the salt marsh. I loved  the photograph of the bridge going over to the island and then the one walking back to town. So pretty, don’t you think?

What an unexpected surprise to find such a gem right in the middle of Wellfleet! Have you ever walked across Uncle Tim’s Bridge?

    1. “Originally built in 1844, the bridge was named after Timothy A. Daniels, a local fisherman and tour guide, who also ran a ships’ chandlery.
      Children would cross the bridge from attending school and stop by “Uncle Tim’s” chandlery for treats on their way into town. For decades, the narrow boardwalk was simply called the bridge over Duck Creek. Daniels died in 1893 and it wasn’t until about 50 years after his death that townspeople started calling it Uncle Tim’s Bridge. Why? It still remains a mystery today.”
