The Kuntz Covered Bridge

The Kuntz Covered Bridge

by Corker2211

Covered Bridges were once a common sight around my area back in the 1800's. The Kuntz Bridge was built in or around 1852. Covered Bridges were used to span creeks or ravines. They also have another name called "kissing bridges." In the old day's it was common to go across the Bridge in your horse & buggy, stop and steal a kiss from your favorite Lady. Now, the same thing is done in your car, instead of a Horse & Buggy. Thus the name.

There only a few of these Historic Bridges left anymore. The others have gone to History. Each one is maintained and kept in repair so future generations will remember what transportation was like in the early years.
