Ceylon Covered Bridge

Ceylon Covered Bridge was built in the late 19th Century to carry County Road 950S over the Wabash River near Ceylon, a small settlement just north of the small town of Geneva, in rural Adams County, Indiana. I'm not sure of the date for the bridge's construction. The signs on the bridge say 1860, but the town of Geneva's website has a page about the bridge's history that says it was built in 1879!

The part of the river that the bridge crosses is now a meander that has been partially disconnected from the main stream, which had shifted its course at some point after the bridge was built. A modern bridge nearby crosses the main part of the river, so the covered bridge has been closed to traffic and preserved as a historic site. It was renovated in 2012. The Ceylon Bridge is the only one remaining out of the twenty three covered bridges that once crossed the Wabash, which is Indiana's longest river.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
