Bath: On the east bank of the Connecticut River, Bath is probably best known for its three covered bridges: Bath-Haverhill which connects with Woodsville in Haverhill, Bath Bridge near Bath village and Swiftwater Bridge on NH Rte. 112. Bath is also home to the Brick Store which says it is the oldest continuously operated general store in the country.
Except for some businesses in Bath village that primarily cater to tourists, there aren’t many services in Bath that can’t be found in either Woodsville or Wells River. However, Bath village is picturesque, and the drive on NH Rte. 135 along the Connecticut River is certainly scenic.
Did you know? Bath considers itself to be the covered bridge capital of New England (although we suspect there are some communities in Vermont who might take exception to that).
