About the Historic Site
Bedell Bridge State Park is a 74-acre park located along the Connecticut River. The park was the site of a historic two-span covered bridge, the second longest in the country. The covered Burr Truss bridge, which connected New Hampshire to Vermont, was destroyed by wind in 1979 and is no longer there. Burr Truss or Burr Arch—is a combination of an arch and a multiple kingpost truss design.
A Fish and Game boat launch is located within the park.
