The Graceful Artist’s Bridge

In the 19th century, covered bridges sprang up in Maine. The purpose of building covered bridges was to help carriages pass through rivers and streams. From the mid-19th century to the early 20th century, more than 120 covered bridges were built in Maine. Due to the weather, only 9 covered bridges remained, among which the most famous one was the Artist's Bridge.

The Artist's Bridge is located in Nuri, Maine, USA. It was built in 1872 and spans the Sunday River near North Bethel. The reason why it was named artist is that the gallery bridge is extremely beautiful and attracts a large number of artists, such as photographers and painters, just like a work of art. The 87 foot long Artist's Bridge is the shortest in Maine. In 1958, a bridge was built on both sides of the lower reaches of the river, which no longer allows vehicles to pass.
