Engle Mill Road Covered Bridge movie, Greene County, OH 2.AVI

I stopped by this bridge late in the day, and the first thing I heard when I stepped out of the car was a series of bangs. I thought someone was in the bridge banging on something, but closer inspection proved it to be a wind-aided noise. This bridge is in pretty rough shape. Get there soon if it's on your list.

This covered bridge was restored sometime this year, 2014.

I stopped at the bridge September 19, 2014. It is now in perfect shape!
