A picture tour and historical information about covered bridges
Click on the name to visit the bridge:
Kreidersville Bridge is in Northampton County, and is the only remaining covered bridge in that county. Built in 1839, it is now closed to traffic. Unlike most of the covered bridges in Lehigh County, this one does not cross Jordan Creek. It crosses Hokendauqua Creek. Its span is 116 feet.
The scenery around Kreidersville Bridge is quite picturesque.
|This bridge is two
years older than Bogert's Bridge, the oldest in Lehigh County, and Wehr's
bridge. That makes Kreidersville Bridge among the nation's oldest.
This bridge has no openings either in the way of windows nor openings under the eaves. It is a very dark interior.
