Bath Covered Bridge in New Hampshire

The Bath Covered Bridge in New Hampshire is one of the prettiest covered bridges in the northeast United States. It's a historic covered bridge over the Ammonoosuc River off US 302 and NH 10 in Bath, New Hampshire, and is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. If you're a covered bridge fan, this is definitely one bridge that you need to see!

Built in 1832, the bridge measures 390 feet long and consists of four spans supported by Burr trusses, resting on stone piers and abutments. You can see the partially frozen Ammonoosuc River running underneath the bridge in our photograph. Yes, we were visiting the area during the wintertime season.

Bath is a small rural town in New Hampshire with approximately 1,000 residents. One of the things that is really cool about this small town is that you'll find a total of 3 wooden covered bridges nearby. Matter of fact, their motto is the "Covered Bridge Capital of New England".

We were just passing through the area and I was pretty excited to stumbled upon this old covered bridge! It's one of the longest that I've personally ever seen and definitely one of the nicer wooden bridges located on the east coast. Just my personal opinion on that!
