Built In 1872, The West Dummerston Covered Bridge Is The Longest Covered Bridge Entirely In Vermont

Covered bridges are plentiful in our green state, and many of them have an old and interesting history. That rings true for The West Dummerston Covered Bridge as well. This elegant covered bridge was constructed in 1872, and it still stands, having stood the test of time. It also holds the record for the longest covered bridge in Vermont that is wholly within the state (the longest in Vermont is the Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge, which is mostly in New Hampshire but has a small section that is in Windsor, Vermont). Located in southern Vermont, the historic West Dummerston Covered Bridge is one of Vermont’s most coveted old bridges.

What are the most unique towns in Vermont? 

Montpelier, our state capital, is a fascinating and unique city in Vermont. In fact, Montpelier is the smallest U.S. capital city with roughly 8,000 inhabitants. The city is interesting due to its small-town charm, lack of big box stores, and position within the surrounding mountains and wilderness. Another unique town in Vermont is Barre. With granite quarries and odd marble statues, this place is a particularly unordinary town in Vermont. The city is also composed of four small unincorporated areas. For more information on the unusual and unique town of Barre, check out this article HERE.
