Travel the back roads of Pennsylvania’s Columbia County and see 13 different nineteenth-century covered bridges on the Columbia-Montour Visitors Bureau’s Tour May 20, 2017. Columbia County boasts 19 of Pennsylvania’s approximately 200 bridges, each with its own history and story to tell.
You’ll hear these stories on your ride through the spring countryside. Each stop will include time for you to explore the bridge and take photographs if you wish. The Tour’s stop at the famous Twin Bridges – one of only two remaining twin covered bridges in the U.S. – includes a homemade picnic lunch. If you would like to extend your tour of the other bridges on your own, the Visitors Bureau provides a downloadable brochure on their website that includes a driving map. Camera buffs take note: each year, the Visitors Bureau holds a photo contest to select the covered bridge to feature on their limited-edition puzzle. Visit their website for contest details.
There’s no better season than spring to enjoy Central Pennsylvania’s historic covered bridges and blossoming landscape, and there’s no place better to stay than The Inn, Farmhouse, and Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill. The tour starts and ends right here in Bloomsburg, and we’ll send you off with a delicious hot breakfast, and be waiting to welcome you back to the inn in the afternoon. We invite you to continue the history lesson by learning about the Brewpub’s history as a bank barn while sipping an artisan brew and enjoying some casual pub fare. Tickets for the tour are very limited, so don’t wait to give us a call and book your stay today!
