The Back Story:

Covered Bridge 2

The first known covered bridge in America was designed by the Massachusetts millwright, Timothy Palmer. It crossed the Schuykill River at Philadelphia with a length of 550 feet, interestingly enough, the bridge was not originally intended to be a covered bridge. Nearly 14,000 authentic wooden covered bridges once existed in our Nation. Today less than 900 remain. Mother nature and time have taken their toll on the bridges, until recent years when Federal grants became available for states to restore and rebuild many of these historic structures.
