The Historic Spain Creek Covered Bridge

The historic Spain Creek Covered Bridge located in Union County, Ohio was built in 1870 by Reuben L. Partridge. The bridge spams 64 feet over Spain Creek and is one of the smallest covered bridges in the state, definitely the smallest in Union County.

In recent years it was renovated in 2008 and 2016 after damage to its upper braces. It's painted in your traditional barn red and off white color scheme that you see on many of these type's of bridges in the area and surrounding states. This bridge is still open to vehicular traffic, so you'll need to pull off the road, park and walk up to it to take your photographs.

We stumbled upon this bridge and several others while on a road trip through Ohio. We enjoy checking out, photographing and waymarking covered bridges that we find. Once home we got online and tried to find out some information on the bridge and there wasn't a lot of it that we could find. It's a really unique looking bridge!
