Braley Covered Bridge

Johnson Covered Bridge or Upper Blaisdell Covered Bridge

Braley Covered Bridge, East Randolph, Vermont

A Vermont Bridge Known By Several Names

The Braley Covered Bridge — also called the Johnson Covered Bridge and Upper Blaisdell Covered Bridge — is located in East Randolph, Vermont. Crossing the Second Branch of the White River, the bridge makes for an iconic focal point — particularly on a snow blanketed New England day.

First built in 1904, this wooden covered bridge is an example of a King post truss design in which the King post truss reaches only half the height of the bridge. When visiting you will also notice a date of 1909 on one of the portals. This later date most likely indicates the addition of the upper portion of the bridge in which the structure truly became a “covered bridge.”

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the Braley Covered Bridge is a visual delight by any name.

Nearby Bonus!

Not far from this location is the Gifford Covered Bridge, also called the C.K. Smith Covered Bridge. Similar to the Braley Covered Bridge, this structure is another example of a King post truss design.
