Hartland Covered Bridge 1 of 6

A little promise I made to Eric Cousineau awhile back, check my comment HERE.

This is what you see as you leave the highway and enter the village of Hartland, New Brunswick, Canada.

The 1,282 foot (391 m) Hartland Covered Bridge is the longest covered bridge in the world. It was originally constructed by the Hartland Bridge Company, which was formed by citizens on both sides of the St. John River, and officially opened July 4, 1901. It crosses the Saint John River from Hartland to Somerville. The framework consists of seven small Howe Truss bridges joined together on six piers.

The bridge was purchased by the government of New Brunswick in 1906. Two spans of the bridge were taken out by river ice April 6, 1920, and the government made major repairs and covered the structure in 1922.
