Simpson Creek Covered Bridge - Harrison Co

Simpson Creek Covered Bridge is located off I-79 at Exit 121 (Meadowbrook Rd). Head west on CR 24 about 1/4 mile, and it's on your left. Turn off the main road like you are heading into the State Police Barracks.


Historical Marker.




View from South entrance. The front facing extends out at the top, making it appear like it is falling over from this angle. (Don't worry, it's not)




Inside photo. There is a picnic bench inside if you want to come on a rainy day.



View from the road. Unfortunately, this scenic bridge is stuck in kind of an un-scenic location, just across the road from Toys R Us and the mall entrance. I'd love to see it 50 years ago - bet it was a peaceful setting. Wait, I did see it 50 years ago, but I was only 1 year old.
