The fall season is a time when we all “ooo” and “ahhh” at the beautiful foliage. It’s as if the mountains are on fire. If you have a chance, include visiting covered bridges on your list of “To Do’s” while traversing thru the Green Mountain State.

Montgomery, Vermont is situated in Franklin County in Northern Vermont and has six covered bridges throughout town. Only appropriate that they are the Covered Bridge Capital of the United States (there’s more covered bridges in this town than anywhere else in the country). They’re a sight to see. Let me introduce you…

Hopkins Bridge – 1875Longley Bridge – 1863

Creamery Bridge – 1883
Comstock Bridge – 1883
Fuller Bridge – 1890
Hutchins Bridge – 1883

All of the bridges were constructed between 1863-1890 and all of the remaining covered bridges were made by Sheldon and Savanard Jewett. These bridges were made from hemlock and designed to withhold the weight of snow, large loads and loggers.

Have I mentioned the views that you’ll see along the drive? Strictly Vermont in its finest!
