Pittsford Vermont, a typical quintessential Vermont town is situated in between Brandon and Proctor and is half way between Rutland and Middlebury along the Route 7 corridor and the Otter Creek.
Home to 4 historic Covered Bridges; the Cooley, the Gorham, the Hammond and the Depot Hill covered bridges are visited frequently by tourists and locals alike. Some have heard of the age old tradition of closing your eyes, holding your breath and making a wish as you pass through a Covered Bridge. Ask a local if wishes made while passing through a Covered Bridge come true.
