July 1, 2019 – Ware – Hardwick Covered Bridge – Massachusetts

Today Shadow, Wilma, My Mom and I Adventured to the Ware-Hardwick Covered Bridge in Gilbertville, Massachusetts.  The Ware-Hardwick Covered Bridge was built in the 1800s.  It spans the Ware River, and is one of the few original covered bridges in the state.

We had a fun Adventure to the Ware-Hardwick Covered Bridge.  We had just finished a walk at Dunn State Park in Gardener Massachusetts.  Dunn State Park is a small, and simple park yet quite pretty.  I decided not to blog about Dunn State Park today as I have done so previously, however you can read this blog at:  https://wp.me/p9RZ48-1s6, or by typing it directly into the search box.   (This is my first attempt at linking a direct website to an individual blog so bear with me if it is not successful on this first try.)

We arrived at the Ware-Hardwick Covered Bridge to find parking a bit limited so my Mom and I took turns walking through and along the Bridge.  We were also able to wander down to the waters edge to take some photographs and enjoy the sounds of the rushing River. The Bridge was especially lovely from the side with a colorful wood grained panel framing the top of the lattice windows.  The red front did not appear to match the style of the side, however added some bright color to the structure.  We sauntered back and forth, pleased to see minimal vehicle traffic and no other visitors.  A short but nice visit to the Ware-Hardwick Covered Bridge today (Rating:  3)

  1. I did not even know this existed. When we were in high school, I know the basketball teams played Hardwick in our division. It must have been a long bus ride from Williamsburg. Anyway, this looks like a scenic place. It’s not too far, I think from one of the gates into the Quabbin where you can walk to the remains of the town of Dana. It’s a rather long walk, however, to the former Dana town common with cellar holes still there. It if probably the only town site above water in the Quabbin area.
