Zook’s Covered Bridge

Watercolor… Leola, Lancaster County. Henry Zook built this covered bridge to cross the Cocalico Creek in 1849. The well preserved, barn red, single span, double Burr arch truss bridge, at 74-feet in length, is also known as the Zook’s Mill Covered Bridge, the Wenger Covered Bridge, Rose Hill Covered Bridge or Cocalico Bridge #7. Zook’s Bridge is one of the few that have not been destroyed or required an extensive rebuild over the years, due to exposure to extreme weather… even as the flood waters of 1972’s Hurricane Agnes, put the entire deck under 6-1/2 feet of the raging torrent of Cocalico Creek. In this view… that is up to the height of the top of the Burr arch. The Zook’s Bridge was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
