Discover our Covered History

Preble County is fortunate to have eight covered bridges still standing including the oldest covered bridge in Ohio and the oldest double barreled or dual wagon-way bridges in the U.S. Throughout the 19th Century, from 1829 until 1896, 29 covered bridges were built in Preble County, Ohio. Some were built for turnpikes, one for the railroad, one by a private enterprise, and some to replace original bridges destroyed by a devastating storm in May, 1886.

From our oldest, Robert’s bridge (1829),  to our newest Hueston Woods Covered Bridge (2012), you’ll delight in a county-wide road trip through history.  Learn more about our bridges here.
