Long Description:

Marker text:

One of four covered bridges in the town of Pittsford, this 139’ Town lattice truss bridge was built in 1842 by Asa Nourse. During the 1927 flood the bridge floated off its abutments and ended up in a field over a mile down stream. During the winter of 1927-28 the town returned the bridge to its former location.

This bridge has seen better days. Extensive stabilization efforts have been undertaken to simply keep it from falling into the river below. Pedestrians are permitted inside, but areas within the bridge where additional support has been added are cordoned off.
