Virginia’s Covered Bridges
Visit the six covered bridges in Virginia, five of which are now preserved as landmarks on public property. The Marysville Bridge was destroyed by a flood in 1996 and no longer exists, so there is no actual bridge to visit. Select a bridge for directions to each site along with a description of the bridge, its history, and an enlarged color photo.

The Great Dismal Swamp, The Dismal Canal, & Lake Drummond
Explore history, current events, information, and photography relating to these sites. Check out Canoeing in the Dismal Swamp by John Boye OReilly, printed in 1890, and Early Recollections and Vivid Portrayal of Amusing Scenes from The Dismal Swamp and Lake Drummond by Robert Arnold, printed in 1888.
