Build a Bridge: The Bissell

I thought it was high time for another Build a Bridge post and as I was going through photos last night, I came across photos of the Bissell Bridge from our trip back East in 2011. Lucky us!


The Bissell Bridge is, of course, a covered bridge and is located just north of Charlemont, Massachusetts along the Mohawk Trail. The bridge was completely refurbished in 2009 and is worth a stop if you dig covered bridges as much as I do.


Originally built in 1880 and rebuilt in 1951, the bridge is perched just above Mill Brook, which boasts a lovely water fall.


If you're looking for more bridge action along the Mohawk Trail you can see a few other stops we made on our journey here, here and here.

Build a Bridge: The French King Bridge

Starting today, Build a Bridge is officially becoming a regular series around here. If you're just joining this little party, please see my first Build a Bridge post here. I thought I'd follow that up with another structure you'll find along the Mohawk Trail in Massachusetts: The French King Bridge.
