Heading out on a scenic tour, many people enjoyed a history lesson on some of the bridges in the valley.

The tour focuses on covered bridges. Since the 70s, The Ohio Historic Bridge Association has been offering tours all around the valley.

This time, four bridges were featured throughout Washington County. They all have vey unique features, some that aren't seen by the untrained eye.

"A lot of these bridges were built in the late 1800s, mainly the late 1870s, 1880s, and they still survived today. So they're lasting quite a bit longer than some of the newer bridges we built in the past," says Ohio Historic Bridge Association, VP, Doug Miller.

The tour also included lessons on the history of the Dunbar Railroad Piers and Harmar RR Bridge in Marietta.
