At one time, there were 14,000 covered bridges in the United States. Today, only 900 of those bridges are still standing, scattered predominently across a few states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, and Georgia.
Along with over 100 black and white photos of covered bridges from Pennsylvania gathered from the HABS/HAER website, this book includes detailed architectural plans that feature the wooden frame structure of the bridges. Pictures of the interior walls and underside of the bridges will allow readers to compare the different carpentry techniques used to complete each structure.
