Cox Farm bridge (also known as Lippincott bridge), like most of the other Greene County, Pennsylvania covered bridges, is located on a fairly heavily traveled township road in an open, rural area.  Newer than most covered bridges, Cox Farm bridge was built in 1940.  It is of Kingpost design, 31 feet 10 inches in length and crosses Ruff Creek.  Although heavily reinforced with 5 steel I-beams, this bridge only carries a three-ton load limit.  The interior of the bridge, seen in the image above, clearly shows the diagonal timbers of the kingpost truss.

This will be the last of the covered bridge series for now, although do not be surprised if I raid my library and find a few more gems later in the year.

  2. This is a cool looking bridge Mark. I looks to be a pretty short bridge. Really like the first image with the road acting as a leading line through to the other side.

  8. Great shot Mark! I got shots of this bridge last fall on a Sunday out shooting with my son. Terrific work!

  9. My name is Roger Cox and I am the grandson of Frank Cox who owned this farm. I live in Arizona now and lived most of my adult life in Seattle so I haven’t been able to visit this farm and bridge very often. It is a true treasure for our children and their children.
