Long Description:

The Coheelee Creek covered bridge was built in 1891 under the supervision of J.W Baughman. The total cost of construction including labor and supplies was $490.41

The trusses have a horizontal cross piece extending across a center post flanked by two compression timbers slanting down and outwards with a set of iron rods slanting down and inwards.


The bridge is in relatively good shape, but unfortunately there is a lot of graffitti.



Current Condition of Bridge: Average-lots of graffiti
