Summer Morning At Rex's Bridge ...

“It was a splendid summer morning and it seemed as if nothing could go wrong.”
                  ~ John Cheever
                   ~ 1912-1982

A stunning summer morning frames the historic beauty of Rex’s Covered Bridge, North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania in late August.

Though diminutive in size, it’s well-traveled in this picturesque rural area where it crosses the Jordan Creek.

The wooden 150-foot-long Burr Truss bridge was constructed in 1858. It has narrow horizontal siding and a gable roof. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
