The Bennington

Recently Bruce Laumeister sat down with Cat Viglienzoni of WCAX Channel 3 to talk about the Covered Bridge Museum and covered bridges of Vermont.

These historical structures bring thousands upon thousands of visitors to our state every year. Bennington County boasts 5 of the remaining 103 covered bridges in Vermont. Built with wood, simple hand tools, and great craftsmanship, the covered bridges weren’t just a pretty thing to look at, they were necessary to everyday life. Often they were the largest structures in the town, and were used for everything from town meetings, revivals, and school plays.  Our Covered Bridge Museum was opened in 2003 and is dedicated to the history and construction of covered bridges.
