The Cornish Windsor Covered Bridge is a covered bridge that spans the Connecticut River between Cornish, New Hampshire and Windsor, Vermont. It was the longest covered bridge still standing in the United States until the Smolen Gulf Bridge opened in Ohio in 2008.
While the Old Blenheim Bridge had and Bridgeport Covered Bridge has longer clear spans, and the Smolen-Gulf Bridge is longer overall, with a longest single span of 204 feet (62 m), the Cornish-Windsor Bridge still has the longest single covered span to carry automobile traffic (Blenheim was and Bridgeport is pedestrian only).
In the photograph, New Hampshire is on the left, Vermont on the right. The mountain in the background is Mt. Ascutney. The white building on the right after the bridge is the old Toll House.
This popular image of an old stone chapel was taken at the Trapp (yes the Song of Music family) Family Resort in Stowe, Vermont. Great cross country skiing by the way.

The Moxley Covered Bridge is a 59 foot long Queenpost Truss. It carries Moxley Road over the First Branch of the White River in Chelsea. This bridge was built in about 1883.
Not one but TWO covered bridges in one photograph! The Willard Covered Bridge and its Twin carries Mill Road over the Ottaquechee River in North Hartland. You can see these bridges from Route 91. Finding them takes a bit of back road exploring.
The Thetford Center Covered Bridge consisted originally of a single span supported by two flanking timber Haupt trusses. In 1963 the bridge was altered significantly; the timber deck structure was replaced by four longitudinal steel beams and a central pier was built under the span. The Haupt trusses now carry only the superstructure of the bridge. Each truss combines a series of timber diagonals and uprights (similar to multiple kingposts) with a laminated plank arch; the arch comprises three layers of heavy planks pegged together vertically.
