Kidds Mill Covered Bridge, Mercer County, PA

Kidds Mill Covered Bridge in Shanango, PA, Pymatuning Township, Mercer County. Kidds Mill is one of only twenty remaining Smith Truss bridges in existence, the only one that is in Pennsylvania, the easternmost example of this bridge in the country, and the only remaining covered bridge located in Mercer County. This bridge is located within 15 miles of the Ohio border, so it is no surprise that this bridge is located not terribly far from the home state of the Smith Truss company. Regardless though, this is a pretty bridge.

This span has faced some graffiti tagging vandalism. 
The bridge measures in at roughly 120 feet and it really seems huge once you go through it. 

If you are in the area, be sure to check out this beautiful covered bridge, along with the rest of this remote area. Springfield Falls, Wendell August Forge, Seven Sisters Bed and Breakfast, the Pymatuning Spillway, Conneaut Lake Park, and other attractions, are located not too far from this location.
