King Covered Bridge

The King Covered Bridge is a Queenpost truss built in 1890. With a few boards missing here and there on the sides, this rustic bridge is covered with unpainted random-width vertical board siding. The roof is covered with steel metal and the deck with crosswise planking. The structure of the bridge rests on cut stone abutments, which are extended to form short wingwalls slightly higher than the road level. It has the typical narrow lengthwise opening under the eaves.

The bridge was restored in 2004 and reinforced with five steel beams.
