I just saw a picture in a local book of a covered bridge that was built in 1851 and crossed over the Maiden Creek at this location until it was replaced in 1932 by a concrete bridge which is probably the present bridge.The single span one lane covered bridge was 145 feet long and 17 feet wide.Also the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks crossed the road just yards from the bridge.The picture was undated so I don't know when it was taken.
