Long Description:
The Pass Creek Bridge was constructed in 1925 or 1906 depending on who you talk to. There was an earlier covered bridge for wagons built in the 1870s. It is most likely the covered bridge was either rebuilt or replaced in 1925.

In the fall of 1987, the roof and siding of the Pass Creek Covered Bridge was removed. A huge crane lifted the trusses and moved them one block away where the structure was reassembled the following year.

Today a concrete bridge now crosses Pass Creek where the old wooden Covered Bridge was once located.

When I visited the Covered Bridge some young boys were jumping from the top rail on one side to the railing on the other side to see who would get the Darwin Award.
Current Condition of Bridge: Excellent
