COVERED BRIDGES NEAR LOWELL, MICHIGAN

This well preserved bridge is still in use near Fallasburg Park. The sign above the entrance reads,  “$5.00 fine for riding or driving on this bridge faster than a walk” (not enforced).

–The bridge was originally constructed in 1871, and has had extensive maintenance about every 40 years, so it is still usable by automobile traffic today. It is one of three such covered bridges in Michigan still open to traffic.

This card likely dates from the 1950s.
