This is a plein air oil painting I did of Blair Bridge.
This is a historical landmark in Campton, New Hampshire. Blair Bridge was first built in 1869. It is 292 feet long and spans the Pemigewasset River. There was a bridge on this location built in 1829 but it burned down and then this covered bridge was built. The construction of the current bridge was brought about when a doctor trying to ford the river on horseback found the current too strong. The horse drowned, but the doctor was saved. The town voted to build a bridge immediately. This bridge was rebuilt in 1977 at a cost of $59,000. In 2011 it was closed following hurricane Irene as it was damaged and now repaired and open. One car can pass at a time.
