Indiana Covered Bridges: Dana, Indiana Images

The Dana, Indiana covered bridge is remarkable. As I’ve said before, it’s not just the outside of these bridges that are neat–it’s the inside, too!

Heading to these different Indiana towns and scouting out their bridges is fun! Every Indiana covered bridge is different. From the outside to the inside, it’s pretty neat to see how the bridge was put together. It’s amazing how they all vary in some way or another. The Dana bridge, for example, has that long sweeping arch along the side–is that neat or what?

Walking through this kind of Indiana history? Love it! I admit, that as much as I hate that people have decided to carve their names inside these things all over the place, it’s kind of neat to read the dates!

    It’s not in a covered bridge, but in the Priest’s Room at Historic St. Patrick’s Church in Lagro, Indiana….Altar boys left their names and dates written on the plaster wall. Some go back to the turn of the century. It’s amazing to see those signatures and the dates inscribed and to realize that where you are standing right now, someone very much like you stood over a hundred years ago!
    Keep up the good work, Jessica! I love Little Indiana and esp. loved you using Wabash for your TV pitch.
