Some great old Covered Bridges Jun 02, 2010
The small town of Pittsford, Vermont is the home to four covered bridges. This old community, established around 1769 claims to have a population of just over 3,000. And the main industry here are the marble quarries. And they even have a marble museum. Another local museum that we did stop into was the Maple syrup museum and store. After looking around the shop for several minutes and chatting with the very pleasant cashier we asked about the covered bridges. She was able to provide us with a map to the bridges. Now this wasn’t the best map ever made and we did get lost a few times along the way, but we finally did get to visit all four of the covered bridges. We even got to see one that the town is very proud of made entirely of marble. It may not be covered but it was a very pretty bridge. The four covered bridges are..
The Cooley, built by Nicholas Powers, 1849. Town Lattice, 60’, spanning Furnace Brook, on Elm Street.
Depot Hill, spanning Otter Creek, on Depot Hill Road.
Gorham, built by Abraham Owen & Nicholas Powers, 1841, Town Lattice, 114’, Old Pittsford-Procter Road
Hammond, built by Asa Nourse, 1843, 139’, Town Lattice, spanning Otter Creek of Florence Road, west of Route 7. The 1927 flood left the structure a mile downstream. It was restored to its proper location during the winter of 1927-28.
