The Hectorville Bridge spans a small gorge carved by the South Branch of the Trout River. With the lower chords rotted through, a jury-rigged kingpost keeps the old span from dropping into the ravine. At the present time the bridge has been dismantled and is being stored at a nearby lumber yard.

Our thanks to the Town of Montgomery for allowing the posting of the Vermont Covered Bridge Society Welcome patch. For more information about the Montgomery area visit their website at www.montgomeryvt.us.
