Covered Bridges in Maine
State of Maine

       Nine historic covered bridges still stand in the state of Maine. (At one time there were 120 of these bridges in the state, but natural elements and progress have unfortunally precipitated the demise of all but those now remaining.) Built between the mid 1800s and early 1900s, these wooden bridges crossed Maine's swifty moving rivers, allowing travelers in horsedrawn carriages to traverse the state's precipitous waterways without getting swept downstream. Today they present a wonderful "photo opportunity" for those wishing to photograph a bit of history! Click on the below links to learn more about these covered bridges, and other historic bridges of interest in the state of Maine. For a map of Maine (PDF file) click here.
