Spent a couple hours here one day talking to the late, great Amos Schwartz while he was working on this bridge...

Something I'll never forget!

Took a couple pictures of the covered bridge today. I almost drove right past it!

The Guilford Covered Bridge originally had a wooden block floor until the fire in 1993. The floor was a casulity of the fire. I only wish a crew could have cut up new wooden blocks and set them for the floor for the rebuilding. The Darlington Covered Bridge in Montgomery County may still have block floor which I'm not sure.
