Nissitissit Bridge in Brookline, New Hampshire is a pedestrian covered bridge painted in red and white. Half of the bridge (46 feet) was original owned by the Covered Bridge Craft Store in Nashua, NH. The store closed and the bridge was donated in 2001 to the town of Brookline, NH. The town extended the bridge to a total length of 110 feet and placed it over the Nissitissit River near Lake Potanipo. The bridge sits on three concrete abutments (four spans) that were formerly part of an old Boston and Maine Railroad bridge which was used by the Fresh Pond Ice Company at Lake Potanipo.
