Indian Creek Bridge - West Virginia
photo by John Bowman August 14th 2009 Indian Creek Bridge - West Virginia Indian Creek covered bridge, which is just off US 219 in Monroe County, West Virginia, about 6 miles south of Union, the county seat. Built in 1903 by two teenagers along the route which would later become US 219. The road closely followed an old Indian path known as the Seneca Trail, or alternately, The Warrior's Path. As the name suggests, the bridge spans Indian Creek. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Indian Creek bridge is one of just two covered bridges remaining in Monroe County; the other, is Laurel Creek bridge [Information from Remaining Covered Bridges of West Virginia.] Somewhat unusual, there is a bench inside the Indian Creek covered bridge; on the interior wall of the bridge opposite the bench are some informational signs.
