Hartland Covered Bridge 5 of 6

Looking at the other end of the bridge.

In 1966, vandals attempted to burn the bridge down.

The bridge was declared a National Historic Site of Canada in 1980.

In 1982, the bridge was closed for repairs after a car struck a steel beam, causing part of the bridge to drop. The car received an estimated $400.00 damage, while the bill for repairing the bridge was $140,000.00. The bridge was reopened to traffic on February 10, 1983.

In the winter of 2007, the bridge was closed, due to the central beam splitting down the middle, it has since been reopened after repairs were carried out.
