The builder Richard Spaulding named this bridge after this grandfather A.M. Foster, creator of the Foster Maple Spout and Bucket Cover used for sugaring.

Bridge troll included. Must give troll the password to get across.

Originally the Stoughton Bridge until Mr. and Mrs. Titcomb bought it and placed it on their property for visitors and sightseers to come by.
7) Cooley Covered Bridge, Pittsford
Built by Nicholas Powers across Furnace Brook.
8) Scribner Covered Bridge, Johnson

12) Willard Covered Bridge, Hartland
A covered bridge leading to another covered bridge...so two birds with one stone?
