(WILLIAMS) – 325 people attended the Williams Covered Bridge dinner on Saturday.
According to Lawrence County Tourism Director Tonya Chastain, this makes the second year of the event. Last year, 275 attended the event.
“This is the Lawrence County Tourism and the Williams Community Association working together to bring the community together. We have people from Indianapolis, Vincennes, as well as many locals attend this event,” said Chastain.
The tickets for the event were sold out. The first event was held during the Bicentennial Celebration last year. Tickets included a meal and a small token of appreciation for the attendees.
It was a beautiful evening for the event, and attendees always have a great time.
The Williams Covered Bridge was built in 1884 by Joseph J. Daniels and is one of Indiana’s longest double span covered bridges. The bridge spans the East Fork of the White River. It is a Howe Truss design, a length of 402 feet including 13 feet overhangs and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
