NINTH OF A SERIES of Christmas Ornaments
The Bump Bridge is located one mile East of NH Route 175 on Bump Road at Campton Hollow spanning the Beebe River. The bridge is 68'4" long with a clear span of 61"6". The original Queenpost structure at this site was built in 1877. The current bridge was built in 1972 after it was determined all of the bottom framing was rotten and there was nothing that could be repaired. The Bump Bridge was constructed in a manner replicating the traditional style of covered bridges.
