4 in Vinton County

1. Arbaugh Covered Bridge or Eakin Mill: only one in the county you can still drive through. I think it’s on Eakin Mill Road

2. Bay Bridge: used to cross Little Raccoon Creek. Currently at the fairgrounds where it was moved when Lake Rupert was made.

3. Cox Covered Bridge: Located on Woodgeard Road North of McArthur just west of RT 93

4. Mount Olive Covered Bridge: Located at the intersection of Mount Olive Road and Goosecreek Road a few miles north of Allensville.

Also used to be the Ponn “Humpback” Bridge. It was destroyed by arson a few years back. It was the longest in the county and was unusually shaped.

One destroyed by arson? What a shame! Whoever did that needs their a)) behind bars!

Yes they do. I don’t know why people feel the need to destroy things just because they can. Especially something with as much history as the humpback bridge.

Sick in the head is what they are destroying things. They get their rocks off doing it.
