On beautiful Vermont Route 30, we were in awe of how this older structure has stood functioning while other concrete bridges are already in disrepair. Gorgeous to walk and drive through with plenty of parking spaces to the side. Walk down the steps towards the...More

This bridge was built in 1872 and continues to be in use. It’s quite long at 271 feet and spans the West River. Only one lane of cars at a time but it doesn’t appear to bother anyone. It’s was quite busy. There is plenty...More

While driving around the Brattleboro area back roads, we came across the West Dummerston covered bridge. It's beautiful, long, and wide enough that we were able to drive our Dodge Ram 3500 dually across. The people, young and old, swimming in the water looked like...More

Only thing that might make it better is fall colors. 6yr old grandson had fun playing in water beneath bridge, slow, shallow water. Great photo background

You cannot stop and view one of Vermont's most scenic attractions and not feel compelled to kiss the love of your life. The memory will last forever. Alas, my last visit was alone with just a memory to relive.
