      A century ago living was simpler, and there was an abundance of unspoiled rural communities. They have largely vanished from the landscape, but not Tunbridge Vermont.  When driving through  Tunbridge you can really begin to appreciate the serenity and beauty of a small town untouched by modern day eye-sores and traffic. 

      Tunbridge is made of up of neat and tidy farms with green rolling hills in the background. Tunbridge is like so many places in Orange County that are untouched by time. 

      Tunbridge folks are proud of their heritage.  Likewise the townspeople were crushed when the MILL Bridge, their 1833 covered bridge was lost to the ice storm of March 1999.
