Click on picture for larger view
Tappan / Kittle bridge was originally constructed in 1906 by Jerome Moot. The only portion of the original bridge that remains is the framing, thus it does NOT qualify for the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge was named after a road situated nearby called Tappan road.
It is located in the Town of Hardenbergh south of NY-56-02 (Forge Bridge), 8.5 miles of Arkville. It is over the Dry Brook, a single span of 43 feet of King post truss.
Directions to the bridge:
From Forge Bridge, less than one mile south on Dry Brook Road, one mile further is a modern covered bridge called Myers Bridge. If you are not visiting Forge Bridge first, from the new bridge across the Dry Brook on State Route 28 in Arkville, take Dry Brook Road for almost 7.6 miles to the Forge Bridge, then one mile additional to Tappan / Kittle.
