The Chiselville Covered Bridge, built in 1870, spans the Roaring Branch on Sunderland Hill Road in Sunderland. Vermont has about 100 covered bridges, and this Bennington County bridge is one that I always remember in particular.

It must be the sign at the entrance: “One Dollar Fine For Driving Faster Than A Walk On This Bridge.” I also see the Chiselville Bridge whenever I watch “Baby Boom,” the 1987 film with Diane Keaton (I watch this movie more than I care to admit). The bridge was featured in the scene when Diane Keaton’s character leaves New York to move to fictional Hadleyville, Vermont with her daughter.
