Visit Meadowcroft during the Washington and Greene Counties’ Annual Covered Bridge Festival.

When Meadowcroft’s Pine Bank Bridge was constructed, there were at least 10,000 covered bridges in the U.S. Today there are only 672. Explore and marvel at Meadowcroft’s very own historic Pine Bank Covered Bridge during the Washington and Greene Counties’ Annual Covered Bridge Festival.

Constructed in 1871, the Pine Bank Covered Bridge spanned Tom’s Run in the village of Pine Bank in Greene County, Pa. When it was slated for demolition in 1961, Meadowcroft founder Albert Miller rescued the retired bridge and moved it 70 miles to its current home at Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village. The pedestrian bridge underwent a rehabilitation project in 2017 and continues to serve as a beautifully restored piece of Western Pennsylvania history.

Please note: The Pine Bank Covered Bridge is accessible to pedestrians only. Cars are not permitted on the bridge.

Admission

Access to the Pink Bank Covered Bridge and Meadowcroft’s historic villages are free for visitors during the festival. Tours of the Rockshelter will be available for $5 per person.
