Walk or Drive Through a Historic Ohio Covered Bridge


The covered bridge in Newton Falls, Ohio was originally built in 1831 and is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the bridge is still open to automobile traffic (no trucks) needing to cross the Mahoning River. A covered crosswalk was added beside the bridge in the early 1920s so students could more safely walk to school.

Social Media Description

Do you ever make an unplanned stop when you see a sign on the roadway?

We started our day with a goal to explore the Amish country in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. Since we had taken an Amish country tour in Jamesport, Missouri just over a month earlier, we decided to explore on our own. Unfortunately, that turned out to be a mistake!

On our drive back to the Cleveland area, we spotted a highway sign that read "Newton Falls Covered Bridge". The bridge was less than 10 miles away, so we took the detour. It turned out to be our best decision of the day. With a pedestrian walkway and auto lane, both covered, the bridge was truly unique.

Fun fact: The Newton Falls Covered Bridge, the second oldest in Ohio, is the only one in the state with a covered walkway.
