(NASHVILLE) – The north entrance into Brown County State Park on State Road 46, two miles east of Nashville, will close today through May 9 to make needed repairs to the park’s historic covered bridge
During that time, visitors will need to use the park’s west entrance, two miles south of Nashville, on State Road 46.
Overnight horse campers should continue to use the south entrance into the equestrian campground when possible.
The historic Ramp Creek Covered Bridge is the only surviving “double-barreled” covered bridge in Indiana and one of only six in the United States. It is also the oldest surviving covered bridge in Indiana. It was originally built in Putnam County in 1838 and was moved to its current location, spanning the north fork of Salt Creek, by the Indiana State Highway Commission in 1932.
The bridge construction is one of four projects starting this month at state properties, including Clifty Falls State Park, Hardy Lake, and Brookville Lake.
