Blow & Cote, the Morrisville heavy construction company that builds bridges, finished the rehabilitation of the historic Seguin Covered Bridge in December.

The Charlotte Conservation Commission organized the Jan. 22 celebration of its rebirth.

Experts call the bridge, built in 1849, one of the finest in the state. VTrans engineers, president of the Charlotte Historical Society Dan Cole and community members as well as members of the Seguin family attended.

Members of the Sequin family, for whom the historic Seguin Covered Bridge is named, came from as far away as Connecticut. Marion Seguin, standing, of Williston. In front are her sister and brother-in-law, Cecile and Leonard Tyl, of Uncasville, Connecticut. Photo by Meg Berlin
