Rebuilding the Bartonsville Bridge

When hurricane Irene rolled through Vermont in 2011, it washed away the Bartonsville covered bridge in Rockingham, VT. The town of Rockingham agreed to rebuild the bridge and they turned to the local timberframers at Bensonwood for engineering, timber work, and construction. We’re happy to say that the bridge is nearing completion, with much of the structural timber work already complete on site. Here are some photos of the work in progress:

One thought on “Rebuilding the Bartonsville Bridge

  1. Thanks for the update – we have a home in Rockingham and this is music to our ears. One day I hope to buy and build one of your Thoreau cabins.

    Best wishes – Ian
