When we think of covered bridges, we think of Vermont. Today, the state still boasts a hundred covered bridges, and records tell of hundreds more such historical structures no longer in existence. Vermont Covered Bridges offers views of the most interesting and beautiful of these bygone covered bridges, as well as old photographs of existing structures. The images are drawn from the archives of the National Society for the Preservation of Covered Bridges (NSPCB), including the incomparable Richard Sanders Allen Collection and the work of noted photographers Henry A Gibson, Raymond Brainerd, and others. Royalties from the sales of this book will benefit the NSPCB. 

Photographer and historian Joseph D. Conwill has been interested in covered bridges since 1966. He has seen every covered bridge in North America, including nearly two hundred that no longer exist. He is editor of Covered Bridge Topics, the NSPCB's quarterly magazine. His photographic work is in various collections, and he is the author of two books, including Arcadia Publishing's Maine's Covered Bridges. 

The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
