The Titcomb or Stoughton Covered Bridge is a 48 foot long Multiple Kingpost Truss . It carries a foot trail on a farm over the Schoolhouse Brook in Perkinsville Windsor County and was built in about 1880.
Does anyone know which "Titcomb" it was named after?

Titcomb's Bookshop East Sandwich, Massachusetts, USA started in 1967 when Ralph and Nancy Titcomb bought a house in Connecticut and found many valuable books and documents in their new home and barn. An impromptu business began when they sold their finds and then launched a mail-order business and had their eight children collating and compiling a catalog. Having stumbled upon the profession of book selling, the Titcombs have stuck with it for more than 35 years. Titcomb's Book Shop still trades in antiquarian books, but it is now also a general new book bookstore.
