Herr's Mill Bridge...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 14 October 2013 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

...One of only a few double-span, double-arch covered bridges left in the United States.
Privately owned, it is no longer opened to traffic.
This bridge is to the right of the mill I showed you two days ago.

What a beauty - I see from its Wiki page that it has/had doors to close on the end. The acoustics in there must be quite an experience.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks, Ronnie, for taking the time to delve into the link info.
We didn't walk inside the bridge, but I'm sure you are correct re; the acoustics!

A great piece of history! It's fine the owner closed the access to pedestrians - it's the only way to protect the construction and preserve it as long as it might last. Fine angle, too!

@Japanalia: Thank you ... I'm glad you found the details interesting. ♥

This is a great shot of the bridge Judy, and well worth keeping for all to see. It is much longer than most of the bridges in New England.

@Gaffey Photography: At 178', built in 1844; it is a long bridge. It is located in Paradise Township on Ronks Road .25 mi. south of U.S. Route 30 to the east of Lancaster city.

franz from Baden, Austria

impressive in its simplicity ... but why would anyone want to own a bridge that's not open to traffic ?!?

14 Oct 2013 3:36pm

@franz: Someone must have wanted to preserve it and not have its history destroyed.

Loner from Wörgl, Austria

A great PoV captured here to illustrate nicely how deep this is! I love its weathered look and the wood grain patterns that you've captured!
