“Quite a dramatically long covered Bridge!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

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.

“An unobtrusive surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

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.

“A true bit of New England history.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

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.

“Longest Two-Span Covered Bridge in the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012

Our local architectural gem, built in 1866 by James Tasker. Mr. Tasker, who was purported to be unable to read or write, built 3 other covered bridges in Cornish -- all worth a visit!
