Significance: The bridge is one of 25 low Warren truss metal highway bridges extant in New Hampshire. Constructed in 1899, the bridge is one of the state's earliest examples of short-span highway bridges employing the low Warren truss design, combined with all-steel materials and riveted connections. The structure is one of three identical bridges erected in Campton in 1898-1899 by the Vermont Construction Company of St. Albans, Vermont, northern New England's sole bridge builder of the period...
