Ebenezer Covered Bridge
Mingo Creek County Park
Washington, PA 15330
Region: Pittsburgh & Its Countryside
Ebenezer Bridge is one of the most popular covered bridges in Washington County today. The bridge originally crossed the south fork of Maple Creek near Ginger Hill. It was moved to Mingo Creek Park in 1977 and placed on the abutments of an earlier bridge. Alterations had to be made to the structure. The 15' by 32; Queenpost bridge has no known date of construction. The Ebenezer is covered with vertical board sides and portals, has a sheet metal roof and deck of crosswise planking, and has two windows on each side. The deck is reinforced with five "I" beams. Part of the popularity of the Ebenezer Bridge is its location in the Mingo Creek County Park and its participation in the yearly Covered Bridge Festival held the third weekend in September.
