Hyde Hall Covered Bridge

Add to Itinerary

America's oldest existing covered bridge sits quietly on the grounds of the old Hyde Hall estate north of Cooperstown, NY. Research shows it was built in 1825, edging out competitors for the oldest-age claim in several other states. A day long grand celebration to publicize national significance of the Hyde Hall Covered Bridge, including a tour of the mansion, a display and slide show on New York's Covered Bridges.
