Some Brandon historians believe Nicholas Powers may have built the Sanderson Bridge. The gable treatment, however, is not typical of Powers' known work. Notice the partial cornice returns and the pilaster mouldings.

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