The Fisher Covered Railroad Bridge in Wolcott, Vermont

The Fisher Covered Railroad Bridge is a covered bridge in Wolcott, Vermont. Built in 1908, it originally carried the St. Johnsbury and Lamoille County Railroad over the Lamoille River. Now closed, it was the last covered bridge in Vermont to carry railroad traffic, and is a rare surviving example in the state of a double Town lattice truss. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

  1. The ST J & LC used to mean St. Johnsbury and Lake Champlain since the rail went to the upper portion of the lake (Swanton area).

  2. I remember seeing a train go across this bridge circa 1998. Thought it was really cool that a covered bridge was still being used as a train bridge.

  3. I would have loved to have seen that.

  4. You say the bridge is now closed. Is it the bridge that is closed, or the rail line that runs over it defunct?

  5. I have been there on many trips to Vermont to visit family. Lots of side trips involved many happy memories for me.

  6. I drive by it every day!
