The Meriden Bridge is in Plainfield, New Hampshire. Like the bridges in neighboring Cornish, NH, this was also built by James Tasker. He constructed it in 1880 for $465. Another man, Levi Sanderson, received a separate payment of $220 for building the abutments on which the bridge rests.
I found this bridge to be very picturesque and welcoming. A plaque on the bridge says that the area beneath the bridge is a popular swimming hole for local youth.
The Meriden Bridge has its share of difficulties. The bridge was damaged by Hurricane Carol in 1954 and was later rebuilt using steel beams. In the spring of 1977, heavy snows caused the roof to cave in.
