Zook's Mill Covered Bridge

One cannot help but find the covered bridges of Lancaster County, PA part of the tranquil experience in Lancaster Living. There are 29 covered bridges in the county. This makes it the number one county in Pennsylvania for covered bridges and second in the nation to Parkes County, Indiana. Many of these bridges are passable by car, but limited to one lane.

This is Zook's Mill Covered Bridge, located within two miles of my home. It is typical of most of the covered bridges in Lancaster county. It is made of the Burch Arch Truss design and can be seen in the picture below.

Most early bridges were constructed of wood because it was easily accessible and affordable. These bridges were covered because it protected the wood and substantially increased its life.
