Comments:
23-panel truss. During the 1927 flood, the North Enosburg Bridge floated 3 miles downstream to Enosburg Falls. This was a double barrel bridge. A postcard of the bridge after it was displaced by the flood indicates that the bridge had been described as 214 feet in length and the longest one-span double barrel covered bridge in existence at the time.
