About This Location

The Tannery Hill Covered Bridge, also affectionately known as the Gunstock River Bridge, stands as a charming testament to Gilford, New Hampshire’s history and commitment to preserving its heritage.

In 1995, this picturesque covered bridge was constructed over Gunstock Brook, reconnecting the town to its past by occupying the site of an old covered bridge that had been removed half a century earlier. The current bridge was a labor of love by Tim Andrews, a skilled craftsman who created it for the town of Gilford. It serves as a vital link, connecting the town hall property to the bustling downtown area.

This delightful covered bridge, with its timber construction and single span, is designed exclusively for foot traffic. Its elegant Lattice through truss design evokes a sense of nostalgia and historical charm. Despite its pedestrian focus, the Tannery Hill Covered Bridge is a robust structure, built to stand the test of time.

Named after a tannery that once thrived in Gilford, New Hampshire, the Tannery Hill Covered Bridge is more than just a crossing; it’s a living monument to the town’s industrial past and the enduring spirit of its people.

The bridge’s World Guide Number, 29-01-03, makes it easily identifiable for those seeking to explore this enchanting piece of history. Although designed for pedestrians, the Tannery Hill Covered Bridge’s substantial size and sturdy construction make it a prominent and enduring feature of the Gilford landscape, welcoming visitors to discover the rich history and vibrant character of this charming New Hampshire town.
