Indiana Covered Bridges...

Candace and I visited a couple of beautiful covered bridges late last month. (Thursday, 29th October.)  After visiting the Short Covered Bridge in Oregon and the Humpback Covered Bridge in Virginia, I've decided that covered bridges are really cool. :) The first bridge we visited was the Richland-Plummer Creek Covered Bridge just south of Bloomfield. From there we drove out into rural Indiana and found the Williams Bridge - the second-longest covered bridge in the state of Indiana at a length of 373 feet or 114 metres. It was a fun trip exploring some history in beautiful surroundings!

 It was built in 1883.
