Blair Covered Bridge - Campton New Hampshire...1829 - 2011...Will be repaired.
The first bridge at this location was built in 1829 at a cost of $1,000.The construction of the current bridge was brought about when a doctor trying to ford the river on horseback found the current too strong. The horse drowned, but the doctor was saved. The town voted to build a bridge immediately. A sign was posted on the bridge indicating there was a fine of five dollars for riding or driving on the bridge faster than five miles per hour. It was rebuilt by Milton Graton and his son Arnold in 1977 at a cost of $59,379. The town of Campton and the state shared the cost of the repair. The Blair Bridge is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

What a shame...I drover over this bridge a couple of days a week to get to one of the "branch" offices of our real estate company.
