When the Sayers Bridge is viewed from the top of the falls, the scene is hard to equal. The truss used in the span is a unique adaptation of Herman Haupt's 1839 patent. The mid-stream pier was added in 1963.

Our thanks to the Town of Thetford for allowing the posting of the Vermont Covered Bridge Society Welcome patch. For more information about the Thetford area visit their website at
