Friday's Fotos - Covered Bridge - Groveton Covered Bridge

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

GROVETON BRIDGE 
Northumberland, New Hampshire

The bridge was built by Captain Charles Richardson and his son. When U.S. Route 3 was reconstructed in 1939, the Groveton covered bridge was bypassed. It was repaired by Milton Graton and his son Arnold in 1964-1965.

The Groveton Bridge is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Keith - I've visited New Hampshire and Vermont many times and always captures photos of their covered bridges - they have a charm and quaintness of a time gone by. You captured beautiful shots - thanks for sharing them with us!

Covered bridges have always fascinated me.  I have always wondered why they first started covering them anyway.   Protect travelers during a rain?

I love these covered bridges.  They seem to have so much character and probably quite a history as well.

Karen, I haven't seen the movie. I will have to check it out.

Andre, I agree, looks heavy duty.

Anita, Good idea, Rob should have one for his barns.

John, Glad you like the photo's.

Than, I agree.

Kristine, Glad you stopped by and enjoyed them. I think those state have the majority of the covered bridges.

William, They covered them to protect them from the elements for longevity.

Erica & LaNita, Thanks for the comments.

Chris, That is and there is an old train engine passenger cars and caboose.

Pat and Joni, I agree and I love shooting the bridges.

Gabe, If they could only talk.

Roy, Looking foward to your photographs. did you come up I-95 if so you were 8 miles from the house at Exit 100.
