North Blenheim is a hamlet in the town of Blenheim, New York. It had the longest wooden, single-span covered bridge in the United States, the Old Blenheim Bridge. It was built in 1855 and existed until 2011, when it was destroyed by flooding caused by Hurricane Irene.[1] The "Blenheim Gilboa Power Project Visitors Center" is also located there.
