Connecticut River, Chester, Connecticut:

Flowing 410 miles from the Canadian border to Long Island Sound, the Connecticut River is New England’s longest river. It’s one of fourteen rivers designated as American Heritage Rivers. The Connecticut River is recognized for its distinctive natural, economic, agricultural, scenic, historic, cultural and recreational qualities. The photographs above were taken from Chester looking north to the East Haddam Swing Bridge, the only swing bridge on the river when it was completed in 1913. The first bridge across the river in Connecticut was built from Enfield to Suffield in 1808.
