The Contoocook Railroad Bridge In New Hampshire Is The Oldest Example Of A Train Bridge In America

If there’s anything our readers should know it’s that we love a good covered bridge! From the longest to the oldest to all the ones that sit somewhere in between, there’s something about the quaint covered bridges that dot the landscape in New Hampshire that makes us even more grateful to be here. But this one comes with an even more special history.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
