|Snow Hill Covered Bridge, Franklin Co, Indiana|
Most covered bridges are off the beaten path. Johnson Fork Road runs right next to the bridge, straight north of an exit from I-74 in southeast Indiana.
Just when you don't expect it, there it is. It didn't look natural to me at first until we stopped and I could walk around.
It spans the Johnson Fork of the Whitewater River.
|Refurbished in 2010 and 11|
It is 123 years old. It's gotten a few touch-ups and some major surgery - not all of it cosmetic.
There it sits. Ready to work without calling attention to itself. It seems true to the original spirit of these structures.

The Snow Hill Bridge is apparently also known as the Johnson Fork Covered Bridge, but I didn't see any reference to that name in the directory I used to find it back in 2011.
I think Snow Hill is a great name and more memorable.
