A Bad Year for New Brunswick Covered Bridges
The Keenan and the St.Nicholas River Bridges lost to fire.

Back to Archives.

Wed, 13 Jun 2001- Good Morning, Vermont! Pat Cook, who is a member of The Theodore Burr Covered Bridge Society, was gracious enough to share these photos with us from their recent trip to Canada. I asked if she would mind if I forwarded them to you for your site and she was delighted. These are very sad photographs, however. You can see where the Keenan-Monquart bridge is smoldering. How very, very sad.
