Bump Covered Bridge

Description

The Bump Covered Bridge is a beautiful bridge in Campton, New Hampshire. The bridge features a Queenpost design and measures 69 feet. It carries Bump Road over the Beebe River and has a capacity of 3 tons. It is a single-lane bridge so one car can cross at a time.

In 1972, the current Bump Covered Bridge was constructed. It replaced an older bridge which was called the Webber Bridge that was built in 1877. The Bump Covered Bridge was constructed to look as though it had been around for many decades. Traditional methods and materials were used in the construction process. One interesting aspect about the bridge is that it was pulled into place by a local Boy Scout group and several locals.
