McConnells Mill Covered Bridge Restoration, McConnells Mill State Park, Lawrence County

Today we take a look at the current restoration project of one of the finest covered bridges in the state, the McConnells Mill Covered Bridge in McConnells Mill State Park. This bridge has withstood the test of time since 1875. More about the history of this bridge, and the adjacent mill, can be found in this article that we wrote a while back. It is one of only five remaining Pennsylvania Covered bridges that were constructed with the Howe Truss method.
This bridge is one of the most beautiful in the state, and it is awesome to see them giving it some restoration love. I can't wait to see the final results!
They are currently in the process of repainting this beauty. This bridge was already in great shape, but it is great to see them continually take care of the bridge. If only all covered bridges were given this meticulous care. One of the things that I am most thankful for as a Pennsylvanian is the great pains we take to care for most of our covered bridges. 
McConnell's Mill! This historic district is so beautiful. The mill dates back to 1868.
I noticed a bird heading into one of the exposed rafters of the building. Naturally, this piqued our interest.
We are thinking it is a dove or a pigeon. Any bird watchers know more?
One of my favorite parts of the park is the giant boulders that line Slippery Rock Gorge.
