Just off of New York State Route 13 in the Village of Newfield is the oldest standing covered bridge in the state that you are still able to drive across. Built in 1853 at a cost of $800, the Newfield Covered Bridge crosses the West Branch of the Cayuga Inlet.

The Town Lattice Truss bridge was dedicated to Elijah Moore, a son of an early settler. Since the being saved by local citizens in the early 1970s, the bridge has been rehabilitated twice. A 1998 rehabilitation added the Musser Overlook. The overlook is named after Grant and Marie Musser and were known as the "Official Keepers of the Bridge
." It was their efforts that saved the bridge from being removed. The bridge would be added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
