The Covered Bridges of New Hampshire
Here are the covered bridges you will find in New Hampshire, listed by the
state county's name.

CARROLL COUNTY

The Honeymoon Bridge is certainly an example of an old time “kissing bridge”,
since it was first built in 1876.  This long bridge is located in the town of Jackson
in Jackson Village.  

Bartlett Bridge was first erected in 1870 and can be easily spotted thanks to its
Covered Bridge Gift Shop.  

The Saco River Bridge was built in 1890 by Charles Broughton and his son
Frank.  Though the present day owner is unknown the bridge still stands,
located in Conway.  

The Swift River Bridge is also in Conway and is located in the White Mountain
National Forest.  This bridge replaced a bridge that was destroyed by a wind
storm a few decades earlier.  

The Albany Bridge has the most seniority as it was first built in 1858, a year
after the original bridge met a similar made with a windstorm.  

Other covered bridges in Carroll County include
Durgin and Whittier.

CHESHIRE COUNTY

The Ashuelot Bridge
in Winchester was first built in 1864 and has a length of
159 feet.

The Coombs Bridge dates back to 1830 and crosses the Ashuelot River.  

T
he West Swanzey Bridge was first built in 1832 and also crosses the Ashuelot
River with Main Street Road.  

Sawyer Crossing is located in Swanzey and is slightly less aged compared to
the others, originally born in 1859.  

The Charleton Bridge dates back to 1869 and carries Charleton Road over the
South Branch of the Ashuelot River.  

The Slate Bridge is another site worth visiting.

GRAFTON COUNTY

Grafton County only has two covered bridges of special interest: the Flume
Bridge
and the Sentinal Pine Bridge.  Both covered bridges are in Lincoln; the
Flume Bridge dating back to 1871 and the Sentinal Pine Bridge dating back to
1939.  Both bridges are located in the Franconia Notch State Park.  

SULLIVAN COUNTY

Finally there’s Sullivan County, which holds the most covered bridges of the
state with 10 historical sites.  

The first bridge of note is the
Blacksmith Bridge, dating back to 1881, and is
surrounded by trees.  (Photographers are advised to shoot from the west side)  

The Dingleton Bridge was first built in 1880 and crosses Mill Brook.  Cornish
Bridge
 is  partially located in Windsor, Vermont.  First build in 1866, the
Cornish-Windsor Bridge connects both states and is still the longest covered
bridges in the country.  

Other covered bridges to look for include the
Meridan in Plainfield, the Pier,
the
Wright, the Corbin, the McDermott and the Drewsville Bridge.  

The
Blow Me Down Bridge is the best-named bridge of them all and dates back
to 1877, when builder James Tasker started a bet with the windstorms of New
Hampshire that he would never lose.
