Whites Bridge, Ionia County

Recently while I was driving down an unassuming gravel road just south of Smyrna in Ionia County, I came upon this gem of a bridge.

The fourteen foot wide Whites Bridge on Whites Bridge Road spans 120 feet over the Flat River. Built in 1870, it is actually the third bridge on this site. It was built at a reported cost of $1,700.00, and other than some siding repairs and cedar shingle replacement, the bridge remains intact.

This beautiful bridge is one of only three historical covered bridges in Michigan that you can still drive across.
