Many of Ohio's historic wooden bridges are still in use, a lasting tribute to their innovative builders and a testament to two centuries of the state's history.
Warm Wooden Spans: Covered Bridges of Ohio The covered bridges of Ohio span more than the rivers and
streams lacing the state's meadows and woodlands. They span
time. They reach from yesterday to today and even tomorrow,
for they're still being built and rebuilt. There are many
stories connected with these bridges and the innovative people
who built them, some as colorful as the autumn foliage
enfolding them in season. In the words of one romantic: "A
covered bridge is a poem stretched across a river."
