What are some of the oldest covered bridges in Ohio?

Covered bridges are such interesting structures. There’s a sort of simplicity about them, and they’re honestly marvels of engineering in their own right. The cover on these bridges prolongs their lifespan to five times that of an uncovered bridge! While dates can be a bit hazy with these historic old structures, here is what we do know: the Newton Falls Covered Bridge is considered to be the second oldest in the state, eclipsed only by one in Eaton built in 1829. The Eaton bridge, the Roberts Covered Bridge, is just barely older than its competitor in Newton Falls. The really interesting thing about the Eaton bridge is that it has been moved from its original location, and though it is still spanning the same creek, it is now in a public park.
