That's what we were told, and for that, it was particularly note worthy. There's parking on both ends of the bridge so that you can walk it a bit, take some pictures and what have you. It's worth a visit on your way.

This extremely long covered wooden bridge spans the Connecticut River between Windsor, Vermont and Cornish, New Hampshire. It is one of the longest covered bridges still standing and in use in the United States. It is a beautiful sight to behold, and brings to mind the olden days and slower times. Traditionally, before crossing a covered bridge, you make a... More

Added another state to our trip by crossing into NH on this bridge. Very nifty to see how they engineered this wooden bridge to span the 290 feet over the river.

It is fun to take grandchildren through one of the longest covered bridges in NEW England. This is a wooden structure. It connects Windsor, VT to Cornish, NH. The speed limit for a horse or horse and buggy is posted at 5 miles per-hour so do not speed.

We stopped here just to see the bridge on our way to Maine, and we were not disappointed. I wasn't sure if you could drive across and to our surprise YOU CAN! What a great step back in time. If you want pictures there's a small pull off on the NH side just south of the bridge. It is worth... More

Whata a fine , historic way to cross the Connecticut River! Bumping along the well worn boards, and protected above from snow and rain, and water below . Could it get any more New England?!!

My wife and I have a hobby of driving around to see all the covered bridges in New Hampshire and Vermont (54 in NH, by the way). It's really fun and can be combined with other attractions. If you try this, you have to visit the Cornish-Windsor bridge because it is the longest such bridge in the United States and... More

If you are in town the covered bridge is definately a quick and interesting stop. The Bridge connects VT and NH, spanning the CT river. Cars use this bridge, so you cannot walk through it. It is a nice site to see though, but I wouldn't make a trip just for the bridge itself.
