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 !

Beautiful drive to visit the Saint Gaudens Historic site and happened on this bridge connecting Windsor VT with Cornish NH. Stopped to take some photos with the mountains for background. Loved the sign that there was a $2 fine for taking horses across. Met a man who said in the 1990s the ice from the Connecticut River got so high... More

This bridge is one of the best examples of the covered bridge and the Saint Gaudens museum is just a few hundred yards away. I'd point you to the museum as being more interesting than the bridge, in fact. The area as a whole is well worth an excursion.

We tried to find the museum for the Cornish art colony on the other (VT) side of the bridge but were unsuccessful. The visit to nearby Saint -Gaudens National Historic Site was fabulous.

We had to drive across this bridge to get onto I-91. A sign above the entrance read there was a $2 fine for riding through on a horse! It had large wood cross beams overhead and spanned the river. While it is a very long covered bridge, it only took a very short time to traverse it by car.
