The Nissitissit Covered Bridge is a pedestrian covered footbridge located in Brookline, NH. It's painted in red and white. Half of the bridge was originally owned by the Covered Bridge Craft Store in Nashua. The bridge represented the entrance to the store. When the store closed in 2001, the bridge was donated to the Town of Brookline. The town extended the bridge to its total length of 110' and placed it over the Nissitissit River near Lake Potanipo. The bridge sits on three concrete abutments (four spans) that were formerly part of an old Boston and Maine Railroad bridge which was used by the Fresh Pond Ice Company at Lake Potanipo.  

Year of Construction: 2001-2003

Location: Located around 300 feet west of the intersection of Route 13 and Mason Rd in Brookline, NH. Parking space is available next to the bridge.

Other Info: In 2006, Cosmopolitan Magazine put Nissitissit Bridge on a list of the sexiest spots in the country and labeled it New Hampshire's "loveliest kissing bridge."
