A very pretty sight from the road, it is fun to drive through. The inside construction is really interesting to see. We had not realized we had gone to Vermont until we came back out to a big Welcome to New Hampshire sign! Very close to the Saint Gaudens National Park that I highly recommend!

To me, all covered bridges are wonderful. This one is exceptional for the length alone, connecting Vermont and New Hampshire. It is well maintained, drivable and beautiful. That about covers it.

When we saw this bridge, we could not resist the urge to drive across it. Although it was day, the bridge was rather dark inside. This made it feel like a tighter fit than it was. At times I wondered if two cars were supposed to be going through the bridge in opposite directions at the same time. The New... More

The Blacksmith Shop bridge crosses over Mill Brook and is closed to vehicles. Built in 1881, the bridge was only used by a single family accessing their property. The bridge was named Blacksmith Shop Bridge because it was located near a blacksmith shop.

"This is the longest wooden covered bridge in the United States and the longest two-span covered bridge in the world." We crossed this beautiful bridge while driving from Vermont into New Hampshire. Then we got back in the car and did it again -- twice! The old sign is a hoot! "WALK YOUR HORSES OR PAY TWO DOLLARS FINE"... My... More

What can I say--it's a covered bridge. Of course, for someone living in New England, I am a bit jaded. If you have never seen or driven through a covered bridge, this is one of the finer ones.

One of the longest bridges in NH. The view of the river and the bridge is amazing. If you drive across the bridge into Vermont the first house on the left is were they would collect the toll money!

One of only a small number of covered bridges left to pass through with a vehicle. Crosses over the Connecticut River; beautiful site to behold.

We've all looked at photos of covered bridges over streams, but this is a real working bridge joiiing New Hampshire and Vermont over a wide section of the Connecticut River. A two-span wooden structure, it is in daily use. You can't walk over it easily, but you can drive back and forth to your heart's content! What fun for the... More
