Three Covered Bridges in Maryland

Utica Road Covered Bridge, painted red

This is the Utica Mills Covered Bridge, not far from the Hunting Creek Fisheries. It was built over Fishing Creek from part of the Devilbiss Covered Bridge that had been over the Monocacy River in Frederick County and that had been washed away in 1889 in the disastrous Johnstown Flood. Over the years it has been repaired and refurbished numerous times.

Little Free Library on side of Utica Road

This is not a bridge, but I saw it on Utica Road on the way to the covered bridge. It is part of a national, and even international, movement to promote literacy, organized by the non-profit Little Free Library, where you can get information to start your own Little Free Library, or find one in your area.
