East and West Paden Covered Bridges, Pennsylvania

When Built: (East) 1884, (West) (Original 1850) (Rebuilt 2008)

Builders: W.C. Pennington

Description: The bridges were bypassed in 1963 and turned over to Columbia County which created the Twin Bridges Park. They are not actually twins, as they are different lengths and the East Paden has a Queenpost truss while the West Paden has a Burr Arch truss system.
