East Richford border crossing

The East Richford border crossing is a really quiet port of entry that connects Richford, Vermont to Sutton, Quebec. The crossing is actually on the Missisquoi River Bridge which was built in 1929. The Canadian border station is located in a rural wooden area. The US border station is also located in a rural area though the East Richford Village is nearby. The station has been there since 1936 and was included on the list of National Register of Historic Places.
