I wanted to see the alleged longest two-span wooden covered bridge in the world. I was afraid it would be in a busy area with no parking, but was pleasantly surprised! Beautiful historic building that is fun to drive thru, wasn't busy at all. Convenient parking for multiple cars was right outside of it on the NH side. Pay attention to the traffic and you can have plenty of opportunities to photograph the bridge from every angle. Just the feeling of driving it was absolutely worth the detour.

This is a wonderful piece of history! It is the oldest covered wooden bridge, in the US and well worth seeing, if you are looking for historical attractions and not ones, with lots of bells and whistles. There is a small parking are, near the bridge, where you can get out, for picture-taking. This time of year, with the fall foliage, as a backdrop, you should get some memorable photos.

My wife and I were traveling along while touring Vermont, and spotted the Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge. We both said we had to stop to look, take pictures, and then make a U-turn and drive through it. This is the longest covered bridge we'd ever seen, and it looked perfect. Our pictures came out fabulous, and we can't wait to post it on Facebook and show our friends. Driving through was a hoot when we realized it was 2 ways. Vermont is a beautiful state, and we found it to be very rewarding.

Definitely worth the trip! No tolls or other costs. It spans the Connecticut River joining the state of New Hampshire and the state of Vermont.In olden days there was a fee for taking your horse across and the sign is still visible but, of course, no longer applicable either.

We went here to see this bridge on the advise of a friend. Glad we did, if you like old covered bridges this is the longest one still around. There is no tolls or fees and is great for photos.

On our way to New Hampshire we drove over and through this bridge. Our host at the Windsor Mansion told us about a unique experience for us coming from Hawaii.

Walk or drive and enjoy. Historic marker on the NH side. Other small historic covered bridges up hill in New Hampshire. A great place to cross the Connecticut River for lunch at Windsor Diner and visit the exceptionally interesting Precision Museum, a birthplace of American technology. Plus just walk Windsor Main Street.

The Cornish Windsor bridge crosses the Connecticut River that connects Vermont and New Hampshire. It just amazes me that these wooden bridges are still operational. The engineering of the era is withstanding to modern engineering with some things. They just built things like homes and bridges to last. Perhaps the charm of wooden covered bridges is the nostalgia of our own childhood days when things were less complicated and our history. At least for some.

There is a parking area on the NH side so don’t park in private residence drive ways.

This is a picturesque covered bridge which is one of the longest in New England.

There is a parking pull off area for five cars. Good picture spot on the way in and out of town.

A short drive down Main Street from where we were staying in Windsor,VT brings you to this beautiful and historic bridge that spans the Connecticut River.
