America's Most Beautiful Covered Bridges

Arthur A. Smith Covered Bridge, Colrain, MA
Dating back to 1870, the last surviving Burr arch truss in Massachusetts initially crossed the North River between Shattuckville and Griswoldville. It’s a survivor indeed: this bridge has been relocated and reconstructed, and was nearly left to rot. A recent overhaul included a fresh coat of red paint and a new name that honors a local Civil War captain.
