CoveredBridge_Falls_CC_2013-07Photo by Charlotte Carlson, Sunapee: Above Hames Park falls, a new pedestrian bridge spans the Sugar RIver in Sunapee Harbor Village. It connects River Road and Main Street by the historic Harbor House Livery (old town hall building). On July 19, 2013, a crane put the wooden bridge in place.
