Quick Description: Scarborough Covered Bridge, on the aptly-named Covered Bridge Road, is the centerpiece of Cherry Hill's Barclay Farm neighborhood. The covered bridge, one of two still standing in New Jersey, was designed by famed architect Malcolm Wells and built across the Cooper River's north branch by homebuilder Bob Scarborough. It was dedicated on Valentine's Day in 1959 as 101 couples kissed to mark the tradition of the Kissing or Friendship Bridge. See nearby Barclay Farmstead Waymark and Cache.
