Colemanville Covered Bridge

Watercolor… At 170 feet, the Colemanville Covered Bridge is the 2nd longest covered bridge in Lancaster County. Located in Martic Township, this double Burr arch truss bridge, is also known as the Martic Forge Covered Bridge and Pequea Bridge #12. It was originally erected across Pequea Creek in 1856 by James Carpenter. The bridge was rebuilt in 1938, following severe flood damage. And again, after another flood in 1973… and then another In 1992… when finally… enough was enough. The bridge was moved slightly upstream to a less vulnerable location and rebuilt once more… and this time… on top of a pair of new stone abutments, that added an additional 6-feet of elevation above the flood prone Pequea Creek. The Colemanville Covered Bridge was added to the Nation Register of Historic Places in 1980.
