Bob White Covered Bride in Woolwine is one more reason Patrick County,
Virginia is a wonder place to live.
The Bob White Covered Bridge was constructed by Walter G. Weaver of Woolwine, named for the former Bob White Post Office which in turn was named after the bobwhite quails that inhabit the area. It served as an access route to the Smith River Church of the Brethren, located on the south side of the river. The bridge was bypassed to the west with a concrete bridge in 1981. Although closed to motor traffic, the Bob White Covered Bridge still attracts numerous visitors. The bridge is the site of annual horse-drawn wagon rides as part of the Patrick County Covered Bridge Festival which is held every June.
I also have a whole mess of pictures I took from around the bridge.
Old houses, leaning shacks, rusty old cars peaking through;
yes this is the south too.
I'm also excited about the 3rd Annual Covered Bridge Run that is happening
June 15th. I'm hoping to get in on it this year. This should be very fun since the run begins at
the Jack's Creek Covered Bridge that is also in Woolwine and end at the Bob White Covered Bridge.
Raising money for a good cause, visiting not one but two covered bridges, experiencing beautiful landscape that Woolwine has to offer just all seems like a win, win to me.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
