The longest wooden covered bridge in the USA.

Very cool historical site. Drove across 3 times, then got out & walked it. Located on the Connecticut River, between Windsor, VT and Cornish, NH.

My husband and I were in Northfield, MA for a 4-day canoe race. One day, we decided to eat lunch in Brattleboro, VT. After a disappointing lunch, we drove around and saw the wooden bridge. We were told that it was the longest covered bridge in the U.S.A. We drove in it and back. We took several pictures of the... More

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.

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?!!
