Managed By: Icon Here Covered Bridges
Description:
Covered Bridges are most cherished and symbolic historic resources. All reflect the widespread construction of covered bridges on public highways, they are one of the highlights in transportation history. Covered Bridges were roofed and enclosed to protect the wooden structural elements from the weather, which can be quite harsh.
Expanded Description:
Covered bridges symbolize the Countryside. Something from the nineteenth century, a little archaic and strange to "nineteen-nineties eyes", picturesque and sentimental, "kissing bridges" recall a time when life was simpler and closer to the land -- if only in our dreams. Covered bridges complement any season from spring flowers to autumn leaves. Photogenic and often remote from the Interstate Highways and cities of the twentieth century, covered bridges lure the explorer to find the little streams and dirt roads that the twentieth century has almost passed by.
