Medora Covered Bridge


The Medora Covered Bridge spans the East Fork of the White River one mile east of Medora, Indiana, on State Road 235.  It is the longest clear spanning (abutment face to abutment face)historic covered bridge in the United States (See the Longest Bridge and Span Pages).


The Medora Covered Bridge has three intermediate spans supported by arches.  It was built in 1875 by J. J. Daniels at the cost of $18,142 and took nine months to build.

It was covered to protect the wooden structure from the weather.

There is parking on both ends of the bridge.  There are picnic tables on the west end with a nice grassy area and enough room to turn an RV around.
