Ashuelot Covered Bridge, Ashuelot

The Ashuelot Covered Bridge is a historic wooden covered bridge over the Ashuelot River on Bolton Road, just south of its intersection with NH 119 in Ashuelot, New Hampshire, an unincorporated village of Winchester. It is a Town lattice truss bridge, built in 1864-65, consisting of two spans with a total length of 178ft. The total width of the bridge is 29ft, and has a central roadway and sidewalks (measuring 3'10" in width) on each side. The bridge rests on stone abutments and a central pier. The abutments have been reinforced with concrete since the bridge was built, and the central pier has been protected by a metal breakwater. The bridge passes 11'7" over the water. One unusual feature of this bridge is that its sides are not fully sheathed, the usual means by which the truss elements are protected from the elements. Instead, the bridge roof is extended to provide long eaves, and the sides are sheathed to the height of the walkway handrails.
The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.
