Elkton in Columbiana County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Church Hill Road Bridge / Timber Covered Bridges
Timber Covered Bridges were vital links in the early road, railroad and canal systems of Ohio and contributed greatly to the growth and development of the State. They were covered with roof and siding to protect the heavy timber trusses from the weather. Many of them have carried their loads and served their communities for well over a century. Fine craftsmen, using broadax, adz, pitsaw, and froe, were able to construct by hand, these sturdy bridges.
Erected 1963 by The Columbiana County Historical Society and The Ohio Historical Society. (Marker Number 1-15.)
