Bedell Bridge State Historic Site in Haverhill, New Hampshire is a 74 acre park located on the Connecticut River. The covered bridge here was destroyed by a wind storm in 1979 and only the abutments can be seen in the river today. There is a boat launch on site giving access to the river. A pleasant small park suitable for boating, fishing, picnics and calm relaxation. It can be somewhat crowded during peak season with most of the visitors being transient. Moody Bedell was a local businessman who operated a ferry from this location across the river to Bradford, Vermont. The charter for the construction of the bridge was made in 1802 next to Bedell’s ferry site.
