Link's Farm Covered Bridge


At the foot of the mountain upon which Mountain Lake Lodge rests, you can see this covered bridge. It located on VA Rt. 700, not far from the turn-off from US 460.

It sits on private property and we did not trespass. We stopped long enough for me to hop out of the car and take a quick shot.

Picturesque covered bridges capture the imagination and seem to call to something in my heart. Others must feel it too, since these little beauties are preserved. Virginia has a number of covered bridges and I would like to see them all.

This bridge crosses Sinking Creek and has been owned by the same family for about 100 years. It was in use from 1912 to 1949, when Rt. 700 was rerouted and turned into a better road. The bridge was repaired and rebuilt in 1995.

  1. Lee wants to build a cover over one of our bridges. All I can think of is that a semi will come and get stuck!
