Harpersfield Covered Bridge

This two span Howe truss bridge is 228 ft. long, formerly the longest covered bridge in Ohio. It is now the second longest in the State. It spans the Grand River which is the primary drainage channel of western Ashtabula County. The bridge was built in 1868 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Located int he County Metro Park it is a great place to picnic. A flood in 1913 washed soil away fromt he north end of the bridge and changed the river channel. The steel bridge was then attached. A walkway was added in 1991-1992 when the bridge was renovated. 11.2 miles from Doyle Road Covered Bridge
