Covered Bridges

Doug’s interest in bridges includes covered bridges. He grew up in Elmwood, IL.  His maternal grandparents lived in Douglas which was just a few miles from the Wolfe covered bridge. The bridge was accepted as a part of the landscape. Many evenings in my teenage years were spent around the bridge.

There are several covered bridges near Winterset, Iowa. Princeton, Illinois has managed to keep its covered bridge despite arson attempts.
