The Harpersfield Bridge, at 228 feet, was the longest covered bridge in Ohio for years until the addition of the Smolen-Gulf Bridge in 2008 (see next page). Constructed in 1868, the Harpersfield Bridge spans the Grand River in western Ashtabula County and is an example of Howe Truss construction. The bridge, which is open to traffic, was restored in 1992.
