Arlington Green Bridge
The scenic Arlington Green Bridge in Bennington County, Vermont, takes center stage in this Priority Mailstamp. One of the most-photographed covered bridges in the state, it was built in 1852.
The digital stamp art depicts the red wooden bridge against a
backdrop of autumn leaves. On the far side of the bridge, a white church
steeple rises from a traditional village green. The bridge spans the
Batten Kill trout stream in Arlington, just off Route 313 in southern
Vermont. Although it stretches 80 feet across the stream, the bridge’s
roadbed is only wide enough to allow one lane of traffic to rumble over
its wooden planks at a time.
