Sign Of A Covered Bridge ...



“I love the nostalgic myself. I hope we never lose some of the things of the past.”

I just love this sign on Manassas Guth Covered Bridge on an early April afternoon, depicting the bridge’s history in a painterly way.

The sign reads: “Lehigh Valley Covered Bridge, Guth’s Bridge, 1858, South Whitehall Township.”

Manassas Guth Covered Bridge crosses the Jordan Creek in South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. The historic wooden bridge was constructed in 1858 and rebuilt in 1882. It is a 108-foot long Burr Truss Bridge with vertical siding. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, and is part of Covered Bridge Park.
