A covered bridge is also known as a ‘kissing bridge’ – a place where a couple can steal a caress in privacy.  A covered bridge has always been a good place to leave a message about affection for one another.

    • Hi. Yes, these bridges and their carvings are great places for mystery. Perhaps someone local remembers these people. Thanks Robin. Jane
