Lumberville-Raven Rock Covered Bridge
Posted October 4, 2020, by Art S. (Asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

The covered and subsequent pedestrian bridges seem to be 5 spans, four crossing the river and one, the Delaware Canal on the PA side. However, the five spans seem to constitute one bridge.

Thoughts?

Also, Wikipedia has the covered bridge authorized in 1835 but built in 1853. I have it as built in 1835. I'm guessing someone transposed some digits in the 1853 claim and the authorization and build dates are actually the same.
