Pennsylvania Covered Bridges

My sister and I recently took the driving tour of some of the Bucks County Covered Bridges in Pennsylvania - an absolutely wonderful thing to do. All the folliage hadn't changed yet, but beautiful nonetheless!! If you're ever in the area, definitely worth the relaxing drive through the country and along the streams and rivers to see some lovely preserved history of the
Bucks Co. 12 remaining Bridges.

Cabin Run built in 1871 on Covered Bridge Rd,
Plumstead Township

Frankenfield Covered Bridge built in 1872
Hollow Horn & Cafferty Rd, Tinicum Township

Frankenfield and interior boards - Built in 1872 - 130 ft long


The Loux Covered Bridge built in 1874
Wismer Rd in Plumstead Township


Uhlerstown Bridge in Tinicum Township with windows on both
sides overlooking the Delaware Canal and path.


I added a few links that have some good Bucks County information and maps:

  1. I miss the Pennsylvania mountains, coal mines, where football and hunting season used to close the local schools and businesses. Aspens are beautiful but those PA maples are the best in fall.
