History of Indiana’s Covered Bridges

History of Indiana’s Covered Bridges

We love all things Indiana around here, and, fortunately, Indiana‘s covered bridges are easy to love. Yes, they’re cool, but, why do we have them here in good ol’ Indiana? What was their purpose? And what are their uses today?  We hope to take you on a trip down history lane, and also give you resources for more information if you’re into this sort of thing. Here are some fun, historical facts about Indiana’s shelter bridges.   History of Indiana’s Covered Bridges According to the IN.gov website, “Indiana’s covered bridge era began in the early 1830s when the National Road first crossed the state. The first Hoosier covered bridge was completed in 1835 in Henry County. We estimate that between 400 and 500 covered bridges may have existed in Indiana… Because the bridges were constructed with timber, they were covered to protect them from the elements. They were often the largest covered area in a community and were sometimes used for revival meetings, weddings, and political rallies… In 1998, however only ninety-three covered timber bridges remain in the Hoosier state. Many bridges have fallen victim to local apathy, the forces of nature, arson, and/or careless driving.” Click here to download the entire file IN.gov provides for more information on history and covered bridges. There is even available charts for where to find the current ones in each county.   Present Day Information on Indiana’s Covered Bridges Currently, the organization, the Indiana Covered Bridge Society, Inc. cares for, advocates, and protects our loved and valued covered bridges.  There are 31 shelter bridges in Indiana standing today. Parke County, and their surrounding counties,...
