Massachusetts Covered Bridges
Sturbridge, Conway, Greenfield, Sheffield, Westfield Mass. Historic Covered Bridges
New England is known worldwide for its many historic covered bridges, and the state of Massachusetts is no exception. Some folks refer to these bridges as “Kissing Bridges”. The picturesque Massachusetts covered bridge is more than just attractive to look at, covered bridges are also practical. They provide a great place to find cover from the hot sun, to hide out from the rain, or to look down into the water passing below. Old bridges were usually constructed out of wood, as it was the most readily available resource. Due to inclement weather these old wooden bridges often deteriorated after only 9 years. Covering them extended their life to easily 80 + years. Many of the most famous Massachusetts Covered Bridges are found in the Berkshires region of western Ma.
