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 wholly within the state of Vermont (the longest covered bridge 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.
