Gilpins Falls Covered Bridge, Maryland

When Built: 1860

Builders: Joseph Johnson

Description: The bridge was bypassed in 1936 and left to decay. In 1958 the roof collapsed under a heavy snow load and in 1959 major repairs were made. In 2009 local citizens and grants from various governments allowed the bridge to be rehabilitated in a historically authentic manner and it left it in beautiful condition.
