World’s Longest Covered Bridge – Hartland, New Brunswick, Canada


The Hartland Bridge in Hartland, New Brunswick, is the world’s longest covered bridge, at 1,282 feet (391 m) long. It crosses the Saint John River from Hartland to Somerville. The framework consists of seven small Howe Truss bridges joined together on six piers.
    The bridge was constructed in 1901 by the Hartland Bridge Company. It was funded by tolls until it was purchased by the provincial government in 1906. The bridge was not originally built covered.
    When the bridge was mostly used by horse and wagon, couples would stop half-way across to share a kiss. The first wedding on the bridge was celebrated in September 1993 between Charmaine Laffoley and David Hunt from Toronto.
    The bridge was declared a national historic site in 1980. (Source:Wikipedia)
