Swanton Historical Society Projects: The Historic West Milton 1902 Pennsylvania Truss Iron Bridge will have a new home in Swanton providing the link referred to previously on the Rail Trail. This unique bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of only two in Vermont to have survived the 1927 Flood. Thanks to the Vermont Agency of Transportation VTRANS the bridge has been donated to Swanton for placement on the abutments where the former Swanton Railroad Bridge stood until its destruction in 1987. VTRANS has agreed to restore and reassemble the bridge in Swanton at no cost to us. It will become a welcome addition to our R.R. Depot Transportation Museum.
