Orne Bridge, Coventry

"Halloween arsonists burned down the original 116 year old Orne Bridge in 1997, located in Coventry Village in the town of Irasburg. Two Vermont men were found guilty of pouring gasoline on the bridge and putting a match to it. Both were fined and sentenced to perform community service. After two years and a cost of approximately $400,000, a near-replica was officially opened on November 29, 1999."

  1. Covered bridges are one of my favorite kind of bridge. We have three here very close to where I live now but none are as nice as these photos.

  2. Beautiful glad they replaced the one that burned.
