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 Spring 2014 newsletter was posted on June 18.

Each year the Society holds six meetings including our annual meeting in October. The meetings are held in various locations throughout New England. The next meeting will be at 1:00pm on July 27th at the Parkview Pavilion near Wyit Sprowls Bridge in East Finley Twp. Park. The bridge is 3 miles north of East Finley on PA231 in East Finley Park. Tom Walczak is planning to lead a mini safari after the meeting. Map.  See the calendar for details of other meetings.
