Welcome to the Medora Covered Bridge.

Hop up on your imaginary horse drawn vehicle to take a nostalgic journey back in time.  You can now pass through the longest river spanning historic covered bridge in the USA whose framework is just as it was when built in 1875 because it did not have to be upgraded to meet modern vehicle standards.
The fact that it is closed to vehicle traffic makes it ideal for exploring the many facets that make up a covered bridge.  One can even go under the bridge if the river is not too high.

Please cross this bridge at a walk because when the horses trot it is thought to cause vibrations which can damage the bridge.

Unfortunately, SR 235 is closed on the east side of the bridge due to replacement of a sewer.  You can bypass by taking SR 235 from the east side to County road 460 W.  Go south to the first road on the right.  Take that road to the tee. Turn right at the tee and you will come out on the East end of the bridge.  Unfortunately,  two of the roads are gravel and they are rough.  Otherwise, it is necessary  to take US 50 west of Brownstown to SR 235.  The signs are very confusing, but SR 235 is open to the bridge from the west side.
