Cutler-Donahoe Covered Bridge
Posted September 19, 2009, by Ruth Plencner (SundanceRuth [at] comcast [dot] net)

I love the covered bridge. Some day I hope to get out there and see it up close. I found a cool covered bridge web page with some 642 covered bridges. I've been out to the covered bridge festival in Parke County, In. I have many books on covered bridges. Have a good day.

A Covered bridge lover, Ruth
