We planned a two week drive about through New England and one of the things we wanted to do was see as many of the old1800s covered bridges. The Creamery Covered Bridge just out side Brattleboro was on the list. It is easy to locate and drive to as it's just off Rt 9 west. The bridge is in great shape and very photogenic. It is quite colorful with its barn red exterior and cross hatch sides. It spans the Whetstone Brook which leads into the Connecticut River at Brattelboro.

I’ve seen a lot of covered bridges in pictures, however I never passed one or visited or walked through any before this trip. What gave I been missing lol?

It was worth the wait as this is surely a fine example of a great structure. I was able to study the construction and walk on the roadway as well as the foot portion.

This is in a nice isolated parcel of land overlooking a pretty stream. Great for picture taking.

This old but we’ll maintained bridge is worth a visit! The woodwork structure is beautiful and has a built on walkway (1917). The bridge is no longer actually driven upon and is a great photo op with the stream flowing underneath. We had the pleasure of meeting a couple of the local caretakers of the bridge. I’m thankful there are folks like them to maintain this history!

This bridge was a pretty red color and well kept. It had pretty flower boxes with beautiful yellow flowers that really set off the striking red of the covered bridge. The only reason I gave it 3 stars was that it was located in the middle of town with busy traffic all around it. A park is adjacent with lots of people. The bridge itself is beautiful but the surroundings doesn't do it justice.

Beautiful location. Lush foliage and gardens surround the property. The creek that runs under the bridge is clear. The construction of the bridge is impressive. Brattleboro has done a wonderful job of keeping the bridge in great condition.

This family business is full of tasty treats for those visiting the Covered Bridge! It is right next to the Bridge and they have delicious ice cream, hime made pastries, bread, and fudge. Hot cocoa too. The friendly folks there will serve you with a smile. No sit down inside dining though. But, the covered porch protected us from the rain Well worth the stop. I bought a candy gift for my mom for New Years.

I always wanted to see an old covered bridge- and this was worth the trip. A beautiful well maintained bridge set over a creek. Very nice to see. There's a picnic table nearby if you want to enjoy a meal.

Discovered the bridge later in the day so unfortunately the store was closed.
Heard many great things about the shop.
The bridge area is lovely to walk around.
It is worth stopping if in the area.

No visit to Brattleboro is complete without a visit to Creamery Bridge and Brattleboro Common.

This 80-foot long town lattice truss bridge over Whetstone Brook was built in 1879. A sidewalk was added many years later. It is Brattleboro’s only remaining covered bridge. It is no longer open to vehicular traffic, but it is still very accessible on foot. Its replacement bridge was built about 100 feet away. There is parking near the bridge on the south side away from the highway traffic on Vermont State Route 9.

The replacement bridge facilitates photo opportunities to get the full view of the side of the bridge. The only obstacle is the electric wires that run above it. Aiming the camera low can eliminate them, but one will likely pick up a lot of exposed stones and debris in the brook in the photo if water levels are low. One would have to evaluate prevailing conditions at the time of the visit.

With or without the wires in one’s photo, the bridge is still pretty as it is kept in good condition.

My latest visit was late in the afternoon on a sunny day as I was arriving in town for an overnight stay. After a three-hour drive, it was good to get out and stretch with a stroll around and over Creamery Bridge. It’s my favorite historic landmark in Brattleboro.

The grounds and bridge are wheelchair accessible.

The Brattleboro Area Farmers' Market is here on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM in season from early May to late October.

I recommend a stop to see and photograph this timeless New England covered bridge painted classic brick red.

Brattleboro, Vermont, was once known for having the most covered bridges in all of Vermont. Now only the Creamery Bridge remains. It is well maintained and no longer allows vehicular traffic. It makes for a great place to have a picnic or just sit and remember the simpler times. We chose it as a site for our simple wedding, which was perfect. While Vermont offers many beautiful and wonderful sights, we found The Creamery Bridge a simple and elegant way to enjoy this most beautiful state. There is no charge for attending and the place is simple and quiet.
