Friday's Fotos - Covered Bridge - Clark's Covered Bridge

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Chesapeake

From my covered bridge photo collection. Photo taken while visiting New Hampshire.

CLARK'S BRIDGE 
North Woodstock, New Hampshire

Clark's Bridge was originally built in Barre, Vermont as a part of the Barre Railroad, a short line railroad which ran between Montpelier and Barre, Vermont. The bridge was built to span the Winooski River.

In 1960 both the railroad line and the covered bridge were abandoned. Ed Clark and his brother Murray dismantled the bridge in East Montpelier and brought it piece by piece to its present site. It was positioned in 1965 and is still used as a part of Clark's Short Steam Railroad. It appears to be the only Howe railroad bridge left in the world. Clark's Bridge is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Good Morning Keith,  I guess I have never seen a covered bridge for trains in growing up in Pa.  Thanks for sharing.

Nice photos. I enjoy taking pictures also, and I tend towards woods and mountains, but there are some covered bridges in this area and I have always wanted to take time to capture them. Thanks again for sharing. :-)

Again, those old bridges are so cool. Thanks for taking the time to photograph them.

BTW, you didn't see any damsels tied to the tracks did you?

I love, Love, LOVE covered bridges. I have not seen any in Texas. I'll have to google that and see if there are any. I am happy to hear that they preserved this one!

It's hard to believe that it's easier to dismantle and move a bridge like this rather than building a new one.

Keith -There is the worlds longests covered bridge in New Bruswick , Canada.  I was there when I was a kid.
