Burkeville Covered Bridge, Massachusetts

When Built: 1870 (Rebuilt 1999)

Builders: Not known

Description: This is often called the oldest surviving bridge in North America which it certainly is not. Hyde Hall in New York dates from 1825, and there are many other bridges which are built before 1870 which survive. It has been rebuilt a number of times and is presently in excellent shape.

This is part of a series on Massachusetts’ Covered Bridges. You can find an index here.
