These pictures were taken near Matthews, Indiana last year. Indiana has a number of covered bridges, particularly in the southern part of the state. Matthews is in the east central section of Indiana where many of these structures have either been destroyed by vandalism over the years or were lost to neglect before the value of the old bridges was fully appreciated. I know when I was growing up in the area, there were quite a few more than there are today. How sad that so many were lost. I've yet to see a covered bridge where I live now. They may exist somewhere in Louisiana but I've never come across one nor do I know of one anywhere in the state.
