Clark’s Bridge – North Woodstock, NH

If you look closelt, that little structure infront of the bridge has attachment s for fire hoses. I guess Clark’s knows that covered bridges have histroically been targets for arsonists.

Why are there only two rather distant photos of this bridge?  It is in one the the tourist attractions in the White Mountains called Clark’s Bears.  It’s a small theme park of sorts with the main attraction being trained black bears.  There is a short railroad that takes guests on a thirty-minute train ride that includes passing through Clark’s Bridge.  I did not pay to enter the park because even it I had; I couldn’t walk over to this bridge. 

Luckily, the bridge can be viewed from the road.

Clark’s Bridge  was originally built in 1904 as a railroad bridge in Barre, Vermont.  Railroad bridges have that tall profile on the opening.  The railroad closed in 1960 and the Clark brothers brought it piece by piece to their park.  It opened for passengers in 1965.

      They all do seem unique. This one intrigues me because of the Clark brothers. I’d like to know more about them. Somehow, the attractrion thrives after almost ninety years in business.
