The Mount Orne Covered Bridge is a historic structure that spans the Connecticut River between Lancaster, New Hampshire, and Lunenburg, Vermont. It was built in 1911 by the Berlin Construction Company, replacing a previous bridge that was destroyed by a flood in 1905. The bridge is a Howe truss design, with an overall length of 267 feet. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Despite being closed temporarily for repairs in 1983 and suffering damage from oversized vehicles in 2006, 2010, and 2012, the bridge remains a significant landmark in the region. As of November 2023, the bridge is closed due to unspecified damage.
