About the Book

Covered bridges are gaining attention as states and counties are making large investments in the repair and preservation of existing covered bridges, offering tours and building new ones. This work documents all extant covered bridges—vehicle, railroad and pedestrian—in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
The book is arranged by state, then by county and bridge name, using the most commonly known or locally used name. All other known names will be included for each bridge, cross-referenced in the index. Each state is prefaced with a brief synopsis of its bridges, past and present, including bridge types, truss types and geographic location.
To be included, a bridge must have been originally built as, or intended to be, a true covered bridge, meaning that it is used as a means of traveling over an obstacle, usually water, not attached to buildings solely for access to the building or between buildings, and has a covered portion at least ten feet in length. Richly illustrated.
