This timber town lattice truss span, which was built in 1879-1880 by Benton Jones and George K. Foster to cross the Middle River, is the longest of the bridges surviving in Madison County. It was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1976. It can be approached via a gravel road in good condition from either St. Charles or Winterset. Parking is easy.

Pleasant dusty trip on a great day . Neat history on the bridges as to their origins and relocations of some over the years.

One of the six Bridges of Madison County. This is the longest covered bridge and timber bridge in the state of Iowa. Like other bridges in the area, it is easily accessible and worthy of a photo or two.

If you are doing the tour of the Madison County covered bridges, this is one of them. It is old and historic, so if you like covered bridges this might be for you. Otherwise, it is rather hum-drum.

There are six bridges total. All are nice and easy to find. We were there on a week day, and there were only a few visitors at each of the bridges. You will enjoy this one.

Our trip to Winterset was to see the Bridges of Madison County. We visited 5 of the 6 bridges. I've watched the Bridges of Madison County several times so I was excited to see the bridges in person. I could picture Meryl and Clint doing their scenes there.

PLUS the workmanship of the bridges - how they were built during the time when cranes and large construction equipment were not available - amazing work!

We really enjoyed visiting all the bridges. This one was another one that had lots of character and was in a beautiful surroundings. Very peaceful.
