A Must See in Ohio: Ashtabula County Covered Bridges

Ashtabula County Covered Bridges, Ohio© 2009 The Holden ArboretumThe 132-foot-long Olin Covered Bridge, built in 1873 and restored in 1994, spans the Ashtabula River in Plymouth Township.

Ashtabula County, Ohio

On a day’s driving trip through Ashtabula, discover covered bridges in Ohio’s wine country. Located on Lake Erie, the county contains 17 historic covered bridges and 15 wineries.

Though the amount of covered bridges in the nation is declining, Ohio’s number continues to rise, with the construction of the country’s longest covered bridge, in Ashtabula. Because roofs protect the bridges, they are durable enough to survive the damaging effects of time and the elements. Many of the bridges throughout Ashtabula County have survived for more than a century needing only minimal repairs.
A self-guiding driving trail is the best way to see all of the bridges. Maps of the trail are available at the Ashtabula County Convention and Visitors Bureau in Austinburg.

Open year-round.
