Depot Covered Bridge, Vermont


When Built: 1840

Builders: Not known

Description: It is quiet now but at one time it was near an active railroad station and from that it took its name. From the images, you can see that railway ties have been placed on a diagonal to stabilize the strucdture from wind, something that the Town Truss has a weakness to.
