Cornish - Windsor Bridge
Build in 1866 at a cost of $9,000, this is the
longest wooden bridge in the United States and
the longest two-span covered bridge in the world.
The fourth bridge at this site, the 460-foot
structure was built by Dela J. Fletcher (1811-1877)
of Claremont and James F. Tasker (1826-1903)
of Cornish, using a lattice truss patented by
architect Ithiel Town in 1820 and 1835. Built as
a toll bridge by a private corporation, the span
was purchased by the state of New Hampshire in
1836 and made toll-free in 1943.
