Product Description

The Bissell Covered Bridge is a historic covered bridge on Heath Road over Mill Brook. This truss bridge was built in 1951 by the T. J. Harvey Company, to a design by the Timber Engineering Company (TECO) and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (DOT). The bridge is 92 feet (28 m) long, and rests on stone-faced reinforced concrete abutments. It was the first covered bridge to be built in Massachusetts in the 20th century, replacing an earlier covered bridge that dated to about 1881. The bridge is sited near an old mill dam and pond, and is not far from the house of Henry W. Bissell, for whom it is named. The bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
