Crossing Sand Creek and constructed with a Howe truss, this 124-foot long structure was built by the Smith Bridge Company in 1886 and is open to traffic.

Established in 1816 and named in honor of Indiana's first Governor Jonathan Jennings, this county is located in Southeastern Indiana where Vernon is the County Seat.

Jennings County originally had two (2) covered bridges and both are still standing.

Points of interest in the County include: the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge, Crosley State Fish and Wildlife Area and Brush Creek State Fish and Wildlife Area.
