STORY

The View from Unity Covered Bridge by Sally McAleerCovered bridge builder Nels Roney built the first bridge across Fall Creek for $2,925 in 1890. A second nearby covered bridge was build in 1936 that cost $4,400 - this is today's Unity Covered Bridge. The first bridge then became a pedestrian bridge only and was later removed in 1953.

Unity Covered Bridge was closed for repairs in 1986. The flooring was replaced and piers and guardrails repaired. New exterior paint covered up graffiti. The roof was replaced in 2014.
