One of the oldest remaining covered bridges in Virginia
Just west of Covington Virginia located in Allegheny County
Thought to be the only arched covered bridge in existence.
1820's the first bridge was built
washed away by flood in 1837.
1842 the second one flooded.
The third in 1856, gone.
Traffic stopped in 1929 and steel truss bridge built.
Neglected and used to store hay by farmers til the 1950's
Women's club of Covington and Covington chamber of commerce
raised the funds to have it restored.
Kind of blurry but reads that Humpback Bridge is a Love work destination
The love Work structures are a focal point of social media campaign to share a message that love is part of every Virginia vacation.
The "L" was created with bricks from the area
The "O" is from one of the retired paper machines at Mead/Westvaco representing history of manufacturing in the area
The "V" is a natural feature created from the tree on the creek bank
The "E" was created with railroad ties representing the railroad to our community
As you can see here the LOVE

A cold, windy day with pretty sun shine.
Covington is a beautiful area we will return to explore more.
