Maxville Covered Bridge
A compiled list of news articles were sent to me many years ago that outlined a number of bridges built in Perry and Spencer Counties by William T. Washer. One of them was a 200ft long single-span Smith truss covered bridge over the Anderson River at Maxville. Much was documented about problems with this bridge and that Washer was summonsed back several times to repair it. The little village of Maxville is now nothing but a memory. W.T. Washer lived in, and is buried in the nearby town of Troy.
Replaced with a metal Pennsylvania through truss.
