LYNDON, Vt. (AP) - The town of Lyndon is buying a privately owned historic covered bridge and land abutting it for $10,000.

The Caledonian Record reported that the Select Board on Monday entered into a purchase-and-sale agreement with Arthur and Jeanne Elliott, the owners of the Sanborn bridge.

The deal was approved by a vote of 3-0.

The newspaper reports that the purchase means that Lyndon owns all five covered bridges in town and allows the community to move forward with plans to turn the bridges into tourist attractions.
