Comments:
Per Report of the Investigating Committee of the Vermont Central Railroad Company to the Stockholders, July 1, 1853, the bridge was known as Lamoille River Bridge and was a 4-span 720-foot Burr, Deck. This is likely an earlier version of the crossing, since later images show a 3-span bridge.
