“Town records indicate that at a March 1880 meeting it was voted to build a bridge near Adam Bissell's. A committee was selected to supervise the construction of the bridge at a cost of $600. An important factor in the construction of the original bridge was caused by increased traffic when the Davis Mine opened in 1882. Ore wagons, carrying iron and sulfur, crossed the bridge for many years. In the late 1940s, the bridge was condemned. Plans were made to build a replacement bridge which was constructed in 1951 at a cost of $54,962.75. It is built of Douglas Fir from Oregon. This bridge was closed in 1995. According to an article in the Milliford Daily News, the state proposed replacing the structure with a new modern steel and concrete bridge but the citizens of Charlemont, Massachusetts, in what has been referred to as the standoff in Charlemont, banded together and fought the project, preferring to keep their covered bridge. The state owns the bridge but the town controls the crossing thus the stalemate. State engineers finally agreed that the bridge could be repaired using wood and a few steel strengthening bars. The bridge was rebuilt and reopened in May 2009. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places February 26, 2004.” from CSOY. Built in 1951, closed to traffic in 1995, restored and reopened in May 2009, it is a replacement for a previous cb at this crossing that was built in 1880. It is a 95 foot, single span, Long truss variation, over Mill Brook, in Charlemont, Franklin County, MA.

New England Fall Foliage Road Trips: Leaf-Peeping Adventures in the Northeast
Leaf-peepers flock to New England each year for nature's display of brightly colored leaves. Here are some suggestions for the best spots around New England to view this glorious show, beginning in late September and continuing through mid-October. One thing to keep in mind as you plan your fall foliage road trip--the leaves follow a pattern as they change moving from north to south and higher elevations to low, so plan accordingly.
Take Route 9 to explore the lower Connecticut River Valley.
Stay: The Bee and Thistle Inn in Old Lyme was built in 1756 but was moved to its current location in the early 20th century. The 9 rooms are stately and elegant with 4-poster beds, luscious linens and private bathrooms.
Do: Ride the rails on the Essex Steam Train, a historic train with an authentic steam location and vintage rail cars, that sets off from Essex for a scenic journey past the area's prettiest leaves. If you prefer sailing the seas, take in similar foliage views aboard the RiverQuest boat with Connecticut River Expeditions.
Vermont has the highest percentage of maple trees in New England with mountains awash in vibrant oranges and yellows; the autumn colors generally peak the second week of October. Take the Green Mountain Byway, VT 100, from the funky small towns of Stowe through Waterbury, past farms and mountains before taking scenic Route 125, or Middlebury Gap Road, through Green Mountain National Forest.
Stay: Green Mountain Inn is a green-certified hotel in the Stowe Mountains with guided foliage hikes, gondola rides and fall mountain adventures.
Do: Check out the scenery from above on a hot air balloon ride in Stowe. Above Reality Hot Air Balloon Rides offers panoramic views of the region including nearby Lake Champlain. Fuel your ride with a snack from the Ben & Jerry's factory in Waterbury with samples and scoops.
Though it may vary from year to year, the fall foliage peaks in the White Mountains in the beginning of October. Take the Kancamagus Highway, Route 112, from Lincoln to Conway to see some of New Hampshire's legendary leaves.
Stay: The White Mountain Hotel in Bretton Woods has 90 luxurious rooms with great mountain and cliff views.
Do: The Kanc, as it's known to locals, runs for 37 miles through the White Mountains, an area known for its covered bridges and mountain fun. Soar through the trees hooked on a zip-line on the Bretton Woods Canopy Tour. When you're back on solid ground, follow Route 16 to Route 302 to Route 3 to Franconia Notch where you can take in the view from the sky during a ride on the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway and stroll through covered bridges and past waterfalls along the hiking trail at the Flume Gorge.
Follow the Mohawk Trail through the Berkshires and marvel at the brightly colored fall leaves and artsy small towns. Starting in Williamstown, take Route 7 to Route 2, the Mohawk Trail, and continue east past North Adams. Just past Charlemont, take a small detour to Route 8A North to cross the Bissell Covered Bridge, a 160-foot-long picturesque bridge.
Stay: North Adams has a charm all its own, unique from the quintessential New England small town, with its focus on cutting-edge art and hip style. Porches is a fashionable lodging choice that beckons city folk and artists to enjoy the renovated Victorian row homes with 47 comfy and retro rooms.
Do: The artsy town of North Adams alights with fall fever each year during Fall Foliage Festival in early October, a celebration of the leaves with a parade and family fun. Follow the Mohawk Trail, stopping at scenic vantage points for photos, and continue on to historic Greenfield to check out the foliage around the 3-story lookout at Poet's Seat Tower.

Road Trip 2016 Day 7 of 8 Restaurant with mountain views
2016-09-26 We wanted to explore more areas nearby, so we left the farm right after breakfast.
We have to pass through Bissell Covered Bridge every time we come or leave the farm. Surprisingly, there is a waterfall right underneath the bridge. In fact, it is the best waterfall amongst all waterfalls we have visited in this trip. Silly us for discovering that late in the trip as the waterfall is about 5-minute drive from the farm.
We drove back to North Adams and visited The Golden Eagle Restaurant with nice mountain views. Another surprise, their foods are very good too, especially the pecan pie. I have had allergies from something, so I have had running nose the whole day.
We then went to North Adams to visit some museums and I wanted to read some histories at their historical society about how Chinese were imported to Massachusetts for shoe making. We did go to Westgate Heritage State Park, which is like museum about North Adams's histories. In there, we found a few pieces of histories about the city.
After that, I decided to see if we could find more waterfalls so we went to Tannery Falls in Savoy. It is a pretty remote area and we had to drive some rough dirt roads to get there. When we got there, it is quite dry, so there was nothing exciting there.
Given that was our last night at the farm, so we went back to the cabin for dinner. Before we went back to the cabin, we bumped into a long-term guest there with his dog and Canon camera + L lenses.
Like previous evenings, we made our own dinner by picking fresh vegetables with minimal meat purchased from outside the farm.
Late at night, I read through many of the farm's guest books and some of them dated back in the 1990s when Norma's goats were producing milk along with other farm activities. It must have been very fun.
