Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 29, 1964):
Appearing as if it belonged in a Currier and Ives print, this is one of the longest single-span wooden covered bridges in the world, stretching 210 feet across Schoharie Creek. The bridge was constructed in 1855 by Vermonter Nicholas Montgomery Powers, who received $6,000 for his work. The bridge was in use until 1932.
