The West Berkshire–Frelighsburg Border Crossing connects the town of Frelighsburg, Quebec with the western portion of Berkshire, Vermont. The US border station at this crossing was built in 1935, and was built as a Works Progress Administration effort to create jobs during the Great Depression,[1] and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Canadian border station was rebuilt in 1971.[2]
