Carmichaels Bridge

Carmichaels Bridge on Old Town Road in Carmichaels, Cumberland Township is one of the eight covered bridges still remaining in Greene County, Pennsylvania.  All eight are still open to vehicular traffic.  All are either painted white or left unpainted.  Carmichaels Bridge, like five of the others in Greene County, is of a queenpost truss design.  It was originally built in 1889 to cross Muddy Creek and is 64ft 8in in length.  The covered bridge was refurbished in 1998 with white vertical board and batten siding on both the sides and portals.

The most comprehensive guide for finding in this area is Pennsylvania’s Covered Bridges: A Complete Guideby Benjamin D. Evans.  It was published quite a few years ago now (but is still available on Amazon) but nothing else even comes close.

  2. I’ve quite a large number of covered bridge shots in my library. I’ll try a few different processes on some and post them to the blog over the next few weeks. Glad you like these ones.

  3. Very job in capturing this, Mark. I like that this one is white, haven’t seen many this color. Most seem to be red or woodtone.

    I love these covered bridges and Pennsylvania has a large number of them, particularly in the Amish country of Lancaster County. I think there are more than eighty in that county alone, a couple of which I’ve captured.

    Visiting these are like going back in time, which I’m sure you experienced. 😉

  6. Very cool. Tim’s right, we don’t have this type of bridge in the UK. This is very Americana to me. Nice job.
