The Sawyers Crossing Covered Bridge, also known as the Cresson Bridge, is a wooden covered bridge carrying Sawyers Crossing Road over the Ashuelot River in northern Swanzey, New Hampshire. Built in 1859 to replace an older bridge, it continues to serve as a part of Swanzey’s transportation network, and is one of the state’s few surviving 19th-century covered bridges. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
