Newmarket, NH, May 15, 2006 - A historic wooden footbridge in Newmarket washed out overnight. The covered bridge crossed the Lamprey River where Main Street meets the river and was built in the early 1800s. As of noon, no other historic bridges or buildings have been reported severely damaged, state architectural historian Jim Garvin said.
