Just down the road from 3 Fat Labs Bed and Breakfast in Greencastle, Indiana sits the stunning Oakalla Covered Bridge. Surrounded by hills and flat land, it couldn’t be in a more beautiful setting. It’s so nice right here that it just feels good to look around and take it all in. You know what I mean?
Still open to cars on a quiet stretch of curvy country road, the Indiana covered bridge lies above Big Walnut Creek. A single span wooden bridge, it was built in 1898 by Joseph J. Daniels or, as he was more commonly known: J. J. Daniels. Although he constructed many Indiana bridges, this is his first work that I have seen. I must admit that I am very eager to seek out a lot more!
At 152 feet long, it is really a beauty! Toward the south rests the old interurban railroad bed. The bridge is named for Oakalla Station. In the interest of brevity, for this is supposedly Wordless Wednesday, I had better cut it short and leave you with a few of my favorite shots! The first image below has been enlarged and printed and hangs in a vintage Victorian frame at our front stairs. I am so glad Indiana still possesses these picturesque points.
