We pass the Eldean Bridge each week from September through May when we head down County Road 25-A to Troy. My husband’s Aunt Net loved Covered Bridges so much that her kitchen walls were filled with drawings, prints, and calendars of covered bridges. She even owned a few small replica covered bridges which I assume that she had collected from various trips over the years.
Eldean Covered Bridge
I could not pass up taking a picture of the Eldean Bridge Historical Marker. Princess took a picture of Eldest and I while we stopped.
On another trip to the Eldean Bridge the sun was shining through the bridge and allowed us to capture this amazing picture!
In order to share how long this bridge really is we took a picture from the outside to show how it goes over the Great Miami River.
Fletcher Covered Bridge
East of Piqua is a tiny town called Fletcher. Many of my husband’s relatives have lived there or are buried in the Fletcher Cemetery right across the street from the Fletcher Covered Bridge.
Here’s a closer view looking through Fletcher Covered Bridge. It’s much shorter and more open then the Eldean Bridge.
A stone memorial was erected right next to the bridge on the north side of the road in honor and memory of everyone listed.
