Vermont's Covered Bridges

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Robbins Nest Barre Town
Privately owned
Robert R. Robbins, 1962, 1964

Queenpost, 56.5' spanning Jail Brook on a private drive adjacent to Route 302.

Robbins started the bridge in 1962 (footings and framework) in order to access his land; the siding was added in 1964.

In aspects of design and appearance, it duplicates details of an earlier bridge about 100 feet downstream which was destroyed in the 1927 flood.
