The town of Brookfield is centrally located south
of Montpelier, and is the site of the famous Floating Bridge and Vermont's
Sunset Lake is crossed by a floating bridge, buoyed by 380 barrels, (the
lake is too deep to support a pillared span). The lake is the site of
much fishing off the bridge and in January it is a coveted viewing point
for one of New England's last remaining festivals.
