Covered Bridge in Palo Alto
Covered bridge located west of Hyndman. This bridge was built in 1877 by the Fichtner family.
They also had a saw mill, hotel and cider mill located nearby back in the old Days.
The stage coach used to often stop here to leave off passengers.
Fischtner Bridge was built 1880 by Jacob or Johnathon Fischtner this bridge is quite separated from the other Bedford County bridges in a remote corner of the county. The bridge was constructed using the Multiple kingpost truss, it crosses Gladdens Run in Londonderry Township. The bridge is 56 ft. long and 13 ft. wide. This bridge is privately owned and in fair condition, it does allow vehicle traffic, but I do believe there are no trespassing signs.
