For many people, covered bridges are much more than picturesque: They represent a living link with an appealing part of our past. Along with a sense of romance, we associate them with an era of hard work, creativity, and ingenuity. Each bridge sparks a new curiosity: Why was it built, how, when, and by whom? How has it lasted when so many others have disappeared? 

This guide will answer these and other questions about all 106 of Vermont's authentic, historic covered bridges. Arranged by convenient driving tours, it provides precise directions to help you find each bridge - leading you through the state's most scenic countryside along the way - and shares with you each bridges history and folklore. Advice on photographing the bridges, parking, and finding nearby historical sites and museums is also included in each tour. Learning about bridge construction and design from the book's introduction will further enrich your experience of a unique part of America's heritage. 

"The author has gone to great lengths in documenting the facts and presenting them in a way that is easily accessible to everyone. This book is long overdue." -Richard E. Roy, National Society for the Preservation of Covered Bridges
