I VISITED BROWN AND NEW HOPE COVERED BRIDGES ON 02-13-2010. THEY LOOK GOOD, BUT I WOULD HOPE THAT PEOPLE CAN HELP KEEP THEM FOR FUTURE GENERRATION TO SEE.

It is still there. I visited it as well as the other 5 in Brown County on Wednesday, November 28, 2007. Why can't the covered bridges be somehow preserved and kept for future generations?
