“Another fine example of workmanship / craftsmanship of NE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

This is a wonderful (long, very long, heck, the longest) covered bridge. One of many in VT, all worth stopping to see, take pictures of, and marvel at what we use to do and how as old as they are, covered bridges still play a part in our daily lives.

“Authentic Covered Bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

What prompted the building of covered bridges? How come they are endemic to Northern New England?

If you visit this one be sure to visit the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site. You'll leave inspired.

“A beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

The young man at the Old Constitution House told us not to miss this special place. We went and were treated to a wonderful sight. The bridge was wonderfully restored. I hope my pictures come out as well.

“Stunning! Can't be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

The covered bridge connecting Cornish, NH (once home to the reclusive writer JD Salinger) and Windsor, VT and spanning the Connecticut River, is the longest two-lane covered bridge in the world. It is a knockout. The scenery in this part of the world is spectacular, and if you drive 5-10 minutes in the opposite direction you will come across another covered bridge, this one the charming little Blow-Me-Down Bridge. Definitely worth the trip.

“Long Bridge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

Beautifully restored bridge through which you can drive your car on the way to St. Gaudens, but there's not any more to say about it.
