“We are told never to cross a bridge until we come to it, but this world is owned by men who have ‘crossed bridges’ in their imagination far ahead of the crowd.” ~Unknown

The Fitch’s Bridge was originally built in 1870 by James Frazier & James Warren, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as of April 29, 1999.

This bridge is a single span of 100 feet of Town truss moved to this present site in 1885. It is over the West Branch of the Delaware River in the Town of Delhi south of State Route 10, east of Delhi.
Photographed in Delhi, New York, USA.

NOTE OF INTEREST Did you know that in the winters, the young boys of the near towns were paid to shovel snow ONTO the covered bridges to allow the horse drawn sleighs to pass with ease!

    Love this, those old bridges are so beautiful wish we had them here! Fabulous capture!

  • I had a great time this year exploring every one I could find here! Still a few left for next summer when the color is better, and will probably go back to all of these when the snow hits! I think I am addicted!

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. you found another one,, thank you for sharing this with us,, they are a dying species you know in our state.. so happy to see restorations and preservation’s are going on…and love your last line about the snow being thrown onto the bridge for the sleighs to glide with ease.. I knew this, but I bet many folks had not thought about it…hugs♥

  • No I think it might not occur to many about the snow. That was why I made the statement, as winter is now upon us! Thanks so much sis! I may just go back to this one in the snow and see how they clean off the oncoming roadways! Be interesting!
