At 265’, the Dick Huffman Bridge is Putnam County’s longest covered bridge.
In southwest Putnam County are the Houck and Dick Huffman bridges, two of the three oldest that were built in 1880. The Dick Huffman Bridge was called the Wekty Bridge when it was built, taking its name from the nearby Wekty Mill along Mill Creek. At 265’ long, it is Putnam County’s longest. A two-span bridge, it’s 16’ wide and 15’ high.
Nine historic covered bridges make the Putnam County countryside both educational and relaxing. Uniquely beautiful in spring and fall, traveling the bridges is particularly fun for motorcycle and bike riders.
