Description
In the first decade of the 20th century this township on the Connecticut River gained fame as a major New England art colony. The central force behind the reputation was sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, but Maxfield Parrish and other notables in arts and letters also found a haven in the village.
About 2 miles south of Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site off SR 12A is the Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge, one of the longest covered bridges in the United States. Built in 1866 and 450 feet long, the bridge spans the Connecticut River and links New Hampshire to Windsor, Vt.
