Register for just this workshop or take it as part of the bridge building workshop set that includes this workshop and all of the following: stone shaping workshop,  small arch workshop, bridge site prep workshop, the stone bridge tour, and the bridge building workshop!   Signing up for the set saves you $100 off the list price of taking all 5 workshop in the set independently.

Historic Bridge Tour. Southwestern New Hampshire is dotted with historic arched stone bridges. Most of these were constructed between 1840 and 1880. Many are still standing and in fact carrying traffic today! The heart of NH bridge country is the town of Hillsborough which had more than a dozen stone bridges at one time. We will see three to five of these. The tour will also include the Gilsum Arch Bridge and the double arch bridge in Stoddard. With a clear span over 36’ high, the graceful Gilsum bridge is entrancing. We are still finalizing the other bridges to see. Stay tuned for updates. Your tour will be guided by local amateur historian/bridge fanatic Tim Berry and Master Craftsman Brian Post. You will learn the history of the bridges and gain insight into how they have survived to function today. Bring suitable footwear to get up close and personal with these bridges.
