Antique sign on Vermont covered bridge shows up again
GUILFORD, Vt. (AP) – An antique traffic sign that disappeared from a covered bridge in Vermont warning teamsters not to drive their horses across the bridge faster than a walk has mysteriously reappeared.
The theft from the Green River Covered Bridge in Guilford was reported on Christmas Eve. Passers-by saw it back again on Tuesday.
The 2-by-3-foot sign is believed to be a century old.
The Burlington Free Press reports Addie Minott, who can see the bridge from her bedroom window, took the returned sign to the town clerk’s office for safekeeping.
The sign says “Two dollars fine to drive on this bridge faster than a walk.”
