One of the longest bridges in NH. The view of the river and the bridge is amazing. If you drive across the bridge into Vermont the first house on the left is were they would collect the toll money!

One of only a small number of covered bridges left to pass through with a vehicle. Crosses over the Connecticut River; beautiful site to behold.

We've all looked at photos of covered bridges over streams, but this is a real working bridge joiiing New Hampshire and Vermont over a wide section of the Connecticut River. A two-span wooden structure, it is in daily use. You can't walk over it easily, but you can drive back and forth to your heart's content! What fun for the... More

If you're in the area it's worth a visit. Take the drive even if it's just across and back. While your'e there take a visit to St. Gaugens National Historic Site, well worth the visit.

Covered bridge, New Hampshire Number 20. This bridge is very long and 2 lanes. Don't miss the standing plaque that explains the history. Longest two-span covered bridge in the United States. Love the sign as you enter the one side - "Walk your horses or pay two dollars fine."

We were on our way to the St. Gaudens National Historic Site. We were driving from the south and we saw the bridge. After seeing St. Gaudens, we drove back to get out and see the bridge and drive across. Great example of an America gone by.

I'm from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where we have a few covered bridges, mainly crossing local creeks and tributaries...but this covered bridge must be the Granddaddy of 'em all. It crosses over the Connecticut River from New Hampshire to Vermont (and vice versa) so you get one L-O-N-G ride over the river. It is in fine repair and is an obvious... More

Omg, this was the first covered wooden bridge I've been on. This is such a cute bridge with sooo much history. Very cool to get a chance to go over.

Just looking at this bridge is worth the visit. Driving over it from one state to another and back again, over and over - that may get a bit tired. Add to that the fact that Saint Gaudens, the American Winston Churchill, Learned Hand, Maxfield Parrish and J.D. Salnger, among others, made the same trip over the same bridge -... More

What a great touch of 19th-Century America. One lane, very long, and well-maintained. It took us back a lot of years. We're so glad we found it !
