    In memory or imagination, covered bridges conjure up sights and sounds of days gone by. In Virginia, they began to dot the countryside nearly two centuries ago. Spanning rivers and streams, their number grew to the hundreds. Today in Virginia, only eight covered bridges are known to still stand. Five have been preserved as landmarks and three are on private property. You are invited to visit these picturesque structures that span time as well as water.
