Sulphite Covered Bridge is located in Franklin NH on the Boston and Maine Railroad Line, close to Monroe St in Franklin, NH.
Sulphite Covered Bridge was built in 1896 and is listed in the World Guide of Covered bridges (WGCB), number 29-07-09, and is New Hampshire covered bridge #62.
Sulphite Covered Bridge got it’s name from the cargo that was transported on the railroad line. Trains carried sulfur in large amounts over the bridge for the paper and pulp mills.
Sulphite Covered Bridge is also called “Upside Down Covered Bridge” because the railroad crosses over the top of the covered bridge.
Sulphite Covered Bridge (Aka Upside Down Covered Bridge) was set on fire on October 27, 1980 but the bridge still stands and is no longer used.
Sulphite Bridge is the only deck covered railroad bridge left in the United States.
