Seguin Covered Bridge

Charlotte, Vermont, USA

 

A plaque on the bridge reads in part:

 

"The Seguin Bridge, spanning the Lewis Creek and built circa 1850, is 72 feet long and, like the Quinlan Bridge downstream, is a kingpost Burr Arch construction. The builder is unknown. In the early 1800s Generanl Nathan Leavenworth operted a grist, saw and wollen cloth mill just east of this site. The woolen mill included carding (combing and cleaning the woll) and cloth dressing operations, a coloring vat and a fulling mill. Fulling refers to dampening and beating the wool to thicken it. The Seguin and Rule families subsequently owned the land around the bridge."
