Bridge #7, The Hune, and the end is near.





The Hune bridge is located north of Marietta on one of my favorite state routes....SR26. It sits all cozy in the trees, spanning the Little Muskingum River..... a river of bitter memories for me.


Covered bridge #27.....











Most of these bridges rest on massive sandstone blocks that are larger than they appear.











It was built in 1879 then renovated in 1998. 128 feet long it lies over the Little Muskingum River. Both the stone for the abutments and the yellow poplar wood to build the Long trusses came from the Hune family farm. It also has the enviable distinction of being one of the many "Tag" locations chosen for the "Farnsy's Ohio TagOrama".......see posts #6185 and #6192.







Sept. 11th 1904........a much quieter and innocent time.
