Events

discharged from the Charles A. Dean Hospital in Greenville, Maine on March 15, 1974 [5]
According to Sgt. Larry Bickford of the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Department, Dorothy Tozier, 76, of Guilford had stopped her 1988 Chevrolet truck at the stop sign on the Kingsbury Road before she continued across Route 15. He said she failed to yield to a vehicle driven by Lois Lynn Pease, 22, of Harmony.
Tozier and Pease, and the occupants in the Pease vehicle, Shirley Pease, 58, and George Pease, 49, both of Harmony, received bruises and abrasions. The Dexter ambulance responded to the accident. Neither of the individuals was wearing a seat belt, he said.
Damage to the vehicles was estimated at $2,000 each. Deputy Scott Richardson investigated the accident. [6]

Destruction of the Low's Bridge on April 1, 1987

This historic 130-year-old Low's Bridge, which was destroyed Wednesday [April 1, 1987] when the Piscataquis River flooded its banks, was the only covered bridge in Piscataquis County and one of only several left in the state.
Only one person, 71-year-old Dorothy Tozier of Sangerville, had depended upon the bridge in recent years as her link to the main highway, which is Route 15 from Dover-Foxcroft to Guilford. A dirt road leading from Mrs. Tozier's home on the dead-end side of the bridge to Sangerville was discontinued in 1951. On Wednesday Mrs. Tozier left her home to go to work before the bridge went out. [7]
The selectmen have been investigating ways to aid Dorothy Tozier and elderly resident who maintains the only home on the road whose main access from Route 15, Low's Bridge, was washed away in the April 1 flood. For about three months after the flood destroyed the historic bridge, she had to walk about seven-tenths of a mile from her home to the East Sangerville Road. She now travels to her home in her pickup truck. With winter fast approaching, town officials and Tozier are worried about how she will manage to reach her home. [8]
It was considered a monumental challenge and an event that will long be remembered by the more than 1,000 spectators who on Thursday witnessed the installation of the replica of Low’s covered bridge over the Piscataquis River. The bridge connects the towns of Guilford and Sangerville.
It was a happy day for Dwinal Hall of Guilford, who with William Hume also of Guilford, organized the effort to replace the historic wooden bridge.
“It’s just terrific. You know how much I slept last night thinking about this? None!” Hall exclaimed. As a child, Hall walked often through Low’s covered bridge to his home on the Sangerville side of the river. He also was there when the bridge was washed away by the flood on April 1, 1987.
After the flood, Hall and Hume organized a petition drive which collected more than 5,000 signatures of Maine residents who wanted to see a replica of the bridge installed.
The original Low’s covered bridge, built around 1830 at a cost of about $450, was destroyed in the 1850s. A replacement bridge was constructed in 1857 and lasted until the 1987 flood.
The bridge served as a tourist attraction and as access for Dorothy Tozier to her home located on the Sangerville side of the river. Tozier has had to rely on an abandoned county way that leads from her home to the East Sangerville Road as her main access since 1987.[9]
