Felton Covered Bridge and railroad bridge- circa 1920’s

Wow! What a great photo. Note the old railroad bridge to the right of the Covered Bridge. There is now a house where remnants of the railroad bridge foundation is. As a Felton Realtor since 1978, I’ve sold that house and many others in the Felton Grove multiple times. It’s fascinating to see what this area used to look like. In the 1980’s my kids played on the Covered Bridge and in the old lot before it became a park. I love this photo. By the way, I was told that the reason the sides of the bridge were removed was so drivers could see oncoming traffic!

    Oh, this is great! I’ve been looking for a picture like this that shows the train trestle and the covered bridge. I believe this was the tallest covered bridge in the west, if not the country, at 35 feet. I remembered being scared to jump off this as a kid when the sides were open after flood damage.

    Hi Tom! Thanks for sharing your memories of the Felton Covered Bridge. I remember that ’82 flood well. Hope to be posting more photos of the bridge from different eras in the future.
