Owner description: The longest covered bridge in the United States.
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This bridge is one of the best examples of the covered bridge and the Saint Gaudens museum is just a few hundred yards away. I'd point you to the museum as being more interesting than the bridge, in fact. The area as a whole is well worth an excursion.

We tried to find the museum for the Cornish art colony on the other (VT) side of the bridge but were unsuccessful. The visit to nearby Saint -Gaudens National Historic Site was fabulous.

We had to drive across this bridge to get onto I-91. A sign above the entrance read there was a $2 fine for riding through on a horse! It had large wood cross beams overhead and spanned the river. While it is a very long covered bridge, it only took a very short time to traverse it by car.

I live in NH and drive by the bridge quite frequently but I love the history and the view every time. It never grows old.

This relatively long covered bridge connects Cornish, NH and Windsor, VT, two small New England towns. The bridge itself is worth a visit and is near to Saint-Gaudens National Historical Site in Cornish. Maxfield Parrish and JD Salinger also lived in Cornish and Salinger is rumored to have frequented the general store and diner in nearby VT.

This area of the Connecticut River Is particular beautiful. Mount Ascutney towers over the valley.
