The Oldest Covered Bridge In Connecticut Has Been Around Since 1840

While Connecticut is full of many historic landmarks, some of the most beautiful are merely a part of how to get from point A to B. The Comstock Covered Bridge is arguably the oldest in the state, dating back to 1840. This is one of only three historical bridges, and it features a walkway for pedestrians to take a stroll over the Salmon River. You’ll be feeling like you’ve transported back to a simpler time at this charming covered bridge. The oldest covered bridge can be found in East Hampton, and it’s so worth a visit.
