Hemlock Covered Bridge

Hemlock Covered Bridge

This bridge spanning the Saco River in Fryeburg, Maine (USA), was built in 1857 by one J. Perry. It was built with a Paddleford truss, but later had arches added for better support. About 25 years ago the bridge deck was further reinforced with steel beams. It’s in a beautiful, quiet spot, exactly as you’d imagine a covered bridge.
