Oldtown Low Water Toll Bridge

The toll collector said it's the "only privately owned toll bridge that crosses a border." I couldn't confirm or deny it by a quick Internet search. We accidently found it while Rebecca and British Kate (the selected Garmin personality) were disagreeing on the best route from Farnham's.
