Eldean Covered Bridge

The Eldean Covered Bridge is a historic covered bridge spanning the Great Miami River in Miami County north of Troy. The bridge was built in 1860 and is one of the nation's finest surviving examples of a covered Long truss, patented in 1830 by engineer Stephen H. Long. This bridge is one of the finest and least altered examples of this truss type. It is the longest surviving example of its type.

The Eldean Covered Bridge is 224 feet in length for its two spans. It is also the longest example of this type of bridge. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2016.
