One of the last vehicular covered bridges in Connecticut, this iconic landmark spans 172 feet long and runs over the Housatonic River.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it still carries vehicular traffic on Connecticut Route 128. Designed by Ithiel Town, it has been in continuous service since 1864.
I have enjoyed touring several of the covered bridges in Connecticut – both vehicular or pedestrian as they make great photo ops from the inside and out! I enjoy peering out their windows to the rivers below as well.
