Clarkson covered bridge

Edit This

There is a very nice, well preserved covered bridge in Cullman County Alabama. The name of the bridge is Clarkson. At the bridge is an old storefront-looking building complete with a porch swing and full length porch. Inside are public restrooms and a small antiques shop. On the grounds are picnic tables, hiking trails, and an old buliding complete with a water mill.Besides the bridge is a historical landmark plaque telling the history of Clarkson Covered Bridge. It is a very pretty place and well worth the time to visit, plan a pic-nic and see a part of our past.

Swann Covered Bridge

Edit This

Perhaps the most well known of Alabama's covered bridges, Swann is in excellent condition considering it's over 70 years old. The bridge is over 300 feet long, making it the longest in the state. Situated in a scenic valley, it (and the area) are allegedly haunted. Located west of AL 79 north of Cleveland.
