Where in the World is Smokey?

Couple Visits Historic Covered Bridge

Aimee Ruzicka graduated from UT Knoxville in 1971 with a bachelor’s degree in history and in 1974 with a master’s degree in library science. A retired law librarian, she now lives in Nesquehoning, Pa., in the southern Poconos.

Aimee and her husband were touring New England in October and stopped in Brattleboro, Vt., at the Creamery covered bridge constructed in 1879 of spruce lumber.

Ruzicka wrote: “The bridge is 80 feet long but with only a 15-foot-wide roadway which can handle traffic just one direction at a time.

“Within the town of Brattleboro, once known for its variety of covered railroad and highway bridges, the Creamery bridge is the only covered wooden bridge to survive. The bridge serves a heavily traveled road which acts as a bypass route to the south end of Brattleboro. Consequently, the structure is threatened with destruction. The Vermont Division of Historic Sites is working to get the bridge placed on the National Register of Historic Places to save it.”
