The Oldest Covered Bridge In New Jersey Has Been Around Since 1872
Covered bridges have become a thing of the past. In most states, you’ll find a handful remaining, but New Jersey has just two – Scarborough Bridge in Cherry Hill (built in 1959) and Green Sergeant’s Covered Bridge near Stockton (built in 1872). Green Sergeant’s Covered Bridge has a rich and fascinating history and can be found on the National Register of Historic Places.
