My father, Mark D. Archambault, MD rode his horse, Nellie across that pontoon bridge on his way to Burlington High School. I remember his story about how every day he had to talk to Nellie to get her across in the winter.It was quite a feat. He was coming from Essex Junction where he was born to Dr. Joseph and Helena Archambault and later practice medicine in the same house on Pearl St. There he lived and raised his family until his death in 1975.
