Perkins Cove Draw Bridge

The Perkins Cove wooden footbridge in Ogunquit Maine overlooks one of the most scenic little harbors on the Maine coast and spans the narrow entrance to the port. The iconic bridge is perhaps the only double-leaf draw footbridge in the United States. The small channel was once very shallow, but in about 1940, the cove was dredged to make room for larger fishing vessels. A new drawbridge was soon added to allow access to the small peninsula while also permitting fishing vessels to pass underneath.
