Bell Covered Bridge

Bell Covered Bridge

The Bell Covered Bridge crosses over Falls Creek in Washington County, Ohio. The covered multiple Kingpost through truss was constructed by E.B. Henderson in 1888.


The Bell Covered Bridge was rehabilitated in 1998 but was closed to automobile traffic in August 2005 because of termite damage. It was later repaired and reopened to traffic.
