Dartmouth Lake Sunapee NH Covered Bridges

Hanover Lebanon Cornish New Hampshire Covered Bridges

New Hampshire has long been known for its remarkable historic covered bridges, which are scattered throughout the state and practically a trademark of New England life. “Kissing Bridges”, as some affectionately call them, are all unique unto themselves. They can reflect the town that they reside in, the artist or architect that designed them, and even the period that they were built in.
