Long Description: Indiana is fortunate to still have 91 "Authentic" covered bridges still standing ... included in this feature are photographs of all these as well as locator maps (except for those on private property). There have been more than 500 of these covered bridges built in the State of Indiana and all have been represented on this site with a home page preserving the structures history and, in many cases, includes a vintage photograph of the “lost” structure. Finally, modern covered bridges, which are classified as "Romantic Shelters," are also listed on this site with homepages including information and photographs for those I have visited. No other State has as an Internet site that describes the history of their covered bridges to this depth making the site a unique portal to the past, to a time when building a bridge required the craftsmanship of the carpenter.
