• Artist's Covered Bridge - Newry, Maine

      The Sunday River Bridge is also known as the Artist's Covered Bridge. It is the most photographed and painted of Maine's nine remaining historic covered bridges. The 87-foot Paddleford Truss bridge is no longer in use and is easily accessed from the road. You can walk across the old bridge.

      If you go:
      There is a pullout just before the bridge with room for a few cars. There is a place just down from there to take photos of the bridge. Use caution walking along the banks or if crossing the replacement bridge.
