The Last in the County: Bells Mills Covered Bridge


Helping cars to cross the Sewickley Creek in North Huntingdon Township is the Bells Mills Covered Bridge. The bridge's barn red color was apparently common in this area of the country. Sadly, this covered bridge is the last in the Pennsylvania county of Westmoreland. It is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Social Media Description

Has a book ever inspired you to find unique destinations?

Many many years ago, I read "The Bridges of Madison County". I had never seen a covered bridge before reading the book, but I now search for them near almost every destination we travel to.

We spent our morning on a search for what we have now decided is the nonexistent Creek Falls. We had what we thought were some good and very detailed directions to get to a path to hike to the waterfall. We approached the area in three different ways and never could find the path. Fortunately, once we gave up on that quest, we were able to find Bells Mills Covered Bridge!

What sites have you added to your "I want to see list" because of a book?
