The Oldest Covered Bridge In Pennsylvania Has Been Around Since 1825
Historic covered bridges harken back to a simpler time, don’t they? To the days before highways and the Turnpike; to when horses pulled buggies, and picnics along the river were a common way to spend an afternoon. Unfortunately, as time marched forward so did modern advances. Covered bridges gave way to concrete and steel bridges. We’re lucky, however, that PA boasts a slew of covered bridges, including Hassenplug Covered Bridge, the oldest covered bridge in Pennsylvania.
