Carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA

Watt's Bridge was among the last in Cumberland County when it fell victim to an arsonist. Unfortunately, the county in 1970 did not recognize the value of it cultural patrimony, so the remains of the bridge were simply piled up by the side of the Conodoguinet, where they remained for a decade. A county that once had dozens of covered bridges now has one. [1970]
