Hollingshead Covered Bridge: Stunning Covered Bridge in Columbia County Across the Catawissa Creek

Hollingshead Covered Bridge crosses the Catawissa Creek in Columbia County. We stumbled across this one as we were heading out of Knoebels Amusement Resort, which is something that often happens as we head out of there. Columbia and Montour Counties are flush with covered bridges, with 28 of them in all. Not only is the region flush with covered bridges, they also take painstaking pride in keeping them in top condition and preserved, which is something the area is especially talented with. Knoebels Amusement Resort is a prime example of this, with them having built several coasters from scratch, utilizing original designs that make the park a global destination for amusement park aficionados. The carpentry skill and prowess of the region is something that I have highlighted before, especially within this other article of ours, "An Ode to the Carpentry Prowess of Knoebels Amusement Resort."  The covered bridges of the region are another great example of the work ethic and carpentry prowess of this region, and it is well worth taking extra time to really appreciate this 

This span appears to be freshly painted, which is something that always looks just awesome. It utilizes Burr Arch Truss construction and dates back to 1850. It is 116.9 feet long. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
