I think that should be "Ballstown Covered Bridge" and not "Balltown". The "town" is less than a mile north of the bridge location on SR 229 as shown on the map. I grew up about a mile south of that location and watched as the bridge was replace again in the early 1970's upstream slightly to eliminate a 90 deg approach turn. The current bridge and approach road is also much high so it no longer floods. I spent many days playing around that bridge and in Laughery Creek!
