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 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.

One of the best of the 68 numbered covered bridges in NH! Worth visiting, especially in a summer or autumn sunny morning to see the fantastic view from NH side of Mt. Ascutney in the background with white clouds around the hill. The Connecticut River is broad at the point and there is also a railway bridge across the river. Taking a walk across the bridge from NH to VT and vice versa is an great experience of passing the longest wooden covered, two-span bridge. Furthermore there are another two numbered old covered bridges nearby which you can visit as a bonus.
