The Oldest Covered Bridge In Washington Has Been Around Since 1905
While the country’s Eastern states are well-known for their historic covered bridges (Pennsylvania has 219!), they’re not quite as common in the “newer” states on the West coast. But Washington does have a covered bridge that is over a century old, and it also happens to be the only one still in use as a public highway. When life gets you down and you feel like taking solace in a bridge, just head to Grays River.
