Comments:
Per the Vermont Phoenix (Brattleboro), November 1, 1912, in recalling the freshet of October 29,1869 in the Townshend area, the article describes that the Harmonyville covered bridge was destroyed in that event and the Scott bridge was "swept away." The Harmonyville bridge was apparently rebuilt, since an article identifies it in use in 1925. Per the Vermont Phoenix (Brattleboro), June 12, 1925, an accident occurred in the covered bridge in Harmonyville.
