Kingsley Covered BridgeEdit profile
The Kingsley Covered Bridge (also called the Mill River Bridge) is a wooden covered bridge in Clarendon, Vermont. Built in 1836 by T.K. Norton, the bridge is a town lattice style with a 120 foot span across the Mill River. The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
It is located West of Vermont Route 103 and just under the landing strip for the Rutland Airport on East Street Extension off Gorge Road, a paved road that turns to dirt after passing the bridge. It is a single lane bridge and is right next to the Kingsley Grist Mill and Mill Houses, all beautifully restored with informational plaques. The bridge is restricted to handling 3 tons and has an eleven foot ceiling. It is a big tourist attraction with many tours and travelers stopping frequently to snap photos. The bridge is a reminder of the old Vermont and is well taken care of, a true state treasure.
