Artists’ Covered Bridge, aka Sunday River Bridge, Sunday River Road, Newry, Maine. Artists’ bridge, built in 1872, is named the Artists’ Covered Bridge
because of its reputation as being the most photographed and painted
of the venerable covered bridges in Maine.
The bridge, an 87 foot Paddleford truss, was closed to traffic in 1958
when a new bridge was built downstream. It is located about four miles off Route 2 on the Sunday River Road.
