Significance: The Honeymoon Bridge is one of more than twenty surviving examples of the Paddleford truss, once a dominant covered bridge form in northern New England. This bridge is significant for its purported association with Charles Austin Broughton, who came from a three-generation bridge-building family of some regional importance.
