The NSPCB Charter states our purpose as: "To preserve covered bridges. To gather and record knowledge of the history of covered bridges. To collect and preserve pictures, printed, and manuscript matter and other articles of historical interest concerning covered bridges. To do all things, alone or in cooperation with other persons or corporations, necessary or advisable to carry out any or all of the foregoing purposes and objects."
The Society publishes Topics, a quarterly containing research articles about covered bridges past and present. The quarterly newsletter keeps members informed of society events and covered bridge news. The Summer 2014 newsletter was posted on September 3.
Each year the Society holds six meetings plus our annual meeting with election of officers in October. The meetings are held in various locations, usually in New England. The next meeting will be on Sunday, September 28th at the home of Carmela Sciandra at 201 Russell Farm Road, Lunenburg, VT. Map. See the calendar for details of other meetings.
