The last stop of the day was the Hills Covered Bridge located a few miles north of Marietta. This bridge is now closed to traffic but I remember crossing through it many times as a kid with my first car and new found freedom.
Standing from 1878 till now........the Hills bridge spans 122' over the Little Muskingum River. It was bypassed in 1990. The bridge was originally built at a cost of $1,586.00 plus $3.00 per perch (a perch is 25 cubic yards of stone) for the abutments. Over $1500.............
.....a lot of money back then.
Underneath the bridge you can still see debris and tree limbs left behind by the last flood waters.........
That's some pretty high water...........
I found a patch of white paint, signed in and headed for home...........
Don't know why I'm lost all the time...
Everyone is always telling me where to go.
