Watercolor… One fine Spring morning in 2021. This 170-foot long, historically accurate, reproduction Town lattice through truss bridge, was built in 1997 after the original 1873 Schofield Ford Covered Bridge (Twining Ford Bridge) was burned to the deck and destroyed by arsonists in 1991. Resulting in the Schofield Bridge’s subsequent removal from it’s earlier, 1980 NRHP listing. The two stone anchor abutments, center pier and approach walls are original, although the wing walls and pier have been reinforced with concrete. Schofield Bridge straddles Neshaminy Creek and is located within the boundaries of the 1,700 acre, Tyler State Park in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The bridge is closed to vehicular traffic and only hiking, biking and equestrian activities are allowed access. Neither the original, nor the new, Schofield Ford Covered Bridge have ever received a coat of paint. That ubiquitous, barn red mixture of skimmed milk, lime and rust (iron oxide).
