This is one of the 3 covered bridges in Bennington, all within a mile or so of one another. They are all still in use as one-way spans. There is a small picnic area, with parking space for a half-dozen cars, right around the corner...More

Very nice covered bridge worth taking a few minutes to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Locals use this bridge, it is not there just for tourists.
