The Covered Bridge Capital of the World

By Linda Tancs

Parke County, Indiana may lay claim to the coveted title Covered Bridge Capital of the World.  That’s because they have 31 covered bridges in a country (and world) dominated by more modern means of travel.  Anyone familiar with The Bridges of Madison County understands the romance of the covered bridge.  Maybe that’s why they flock in the thousands to locales like Rockport, Indiana, where the Jackson Covered Bridge of 1861 spans Sugar Creek.  Mansfield Bridge draws some two million people annually at the Covered Bridge Festival.  We’re not talking relics, either.  The 245-foot-long Bridgeton Covered Bridge was constructed in 2006 in Bridgeton, Indiana.  Built to last?  You betcha.
