Maine can be a lot of things. It can be the hustle and bustle of a busy Portland summer night or it can be the quaint and reserved beauty of the rural country. Today we’re focusing on the latter. One feature that makes it so peaceful are the covered bridges dotting the landscape from north to south. While there are quite a few you can explore (see the bottom of this article for a link with more information) one of our favorites is Artist’s Bridge in Newry. Do you know how it got its name? You might be surprised once you’ve heard the REAL reason!
