The Marchand Covered Bridge

Mansfield-et-Pontefract ( Outaouais )

The Marchand Covered Bridge was built in 1898 by Augustus Brown of Beachburg. It replaces two older bridges that were in the same place on the Coulonge River. The two bridges were the link between the lumberjack’s camp and the village of Fort Coulonge. Held up by six wooden pillars, it measures about 129 meters. Its the second longest covered bridge in Quebec. Built entirely out of pine, this “one way” bridge was covered so that it wouldn’t rot. The bridge is still in service and it adds to the picturesque charm of the river.
