In my neck of the woods, on narrow country roads, there remain a few covered wooden bridges. Others have been moved to parks or museums in an effort to preserve these quaint structures. This one, the Henry, is located in Mingo Creek Park, PA. You may still drive through it as you pass over the small creek.
These bridges harken us back to a slower, more considerate time when folks may have needed shelter in a storm and could have taken refuge inside the bridge. Some were known as “kissing bridges”, as they served as the perfect spot to steal a kiss while on a Sunday stroll.

I love covered bridges! Great photo.
Beautiful! We had a few in Cottage Grove, south of Eugene, Oregon. They are so adorable.
