The Majority Of Maine’s Covered Bridges Can Be Found In This Jaw Dropping Region

Maine’s quintessential small towns are worth every photo, every painting and every story we hear about them. They’re beautiful and quaint reminding us of a simpler time when just crossing a river required ingenuity and creativity that we oftentimes don’t think about today. The period between the 1800s and 1900s saw the majority of covered bridges in Maine built in these small towns and there’s no better place to see them than in the Lakes and Mountains region. While there were once 120 covered bridges in the state, most were destroyed by things like flood, fire and… modernity. Today there are nine bridges left in the state and six of them can be found relatively close to each other. To find your way to each bridge, follow these directions using Google Maps.
