Waupaca Covered Bridge 49-69-B
Posted February 11, 2021, by Christine Anderson (cmadance [at] earthlink [dot] net)

Can you tell me more about this bridge? My grandmother Flora Olfson Anderson lived in Waupaca back in the late 1800s early 1900s. I am going to try an load up a painting that was done by a friend of hers. I am wondering if it is in the same location, but with a new bridge. Your information says the current bridge went up in 1976. The photo attached went up long before that. Thanks for any help!
