The two RV Gypsies went to the
West Cornwall Covered Bridge
In Litchfield County
October 8, 2013 & September 29, 2014

The West Cornwall Covered Bridge is a two span Town Lattice and Queenpost Truss with a total length of 242 feet. It carries CT 128 over the Housatonic River in the town of West Cornwall. This historic bridge was built in 1841. It is a two-way bridge, but cars must take turns driving through it because it is only one lane. (note: there is also a West Cornwall Covered Bridge aka Hart Bridge in Cornwall, Connecticut on Route 128).

After crossing through the covered bridge there was a nice flower garden and USA flag in the middle of the road.

September 29, 2014 - The two RV Gypsies enjoyed a picnic lunch at River Park, right next to the covered bridge, and they met some very nice people.

Photos of the covered bridge (10/8/13). The bridge looked dark instead of red because Karen had to aim the camera towards the sun.
