Frankenstein Trestle, Crawford Notch – Frankenstein Trestle is located along the old Maine Central Railroad in New Hampshire’s Crawford Notch in the White Mountains. And the historical marker for the trestle is located along Route 302 near the Dry River Campground. The trestle is named for Godfrey Frankenstein, a German born artist who spent time painting in the Crawford Notch area during the 1800s.

The railroad was chartered in 1867 as the Portland & Ogdensburg Railroad Company, then leased to the Maine Central Railroad in 1888, and later abandoned in 1983.
