Kreidersville Covered Bridge

This beautiful covered bridge was built in 1839 and spans the Hokendauqua Creek at a length of 96 feet.  It is the only covered bridge in Northampton County.  It utilizes a Burr truss design and is closed to all but pedestrian traffic.  Each year, Allen Township holds several community events at the bridge including a Covered Bridge festival.  Santa Claus also shows up at the bridge each year during the Christmas holidays and the area kids all participate.  Of all the bridges that I have personally seen so far in Pennsylvania, the Kreidersville Covered Bridge is perhaps the recipient of the best organized community involvement.  The community has a web site http://www.kreidersvillecoveredbridge.org which covers the bridge's history, current news about landscaping and repair work, bridge festival news and other bridge information. On the bridge grounds, there are benches to sit on and a small parking area to pull into.  The landscaping at the bridge is absolutely beautiful.  They take maintenance of this bridge very seriously.
