Welcome to the National Society for the Preservation
of Covered Bridges' (NSPCB) database web site.

If you are unfamiliar with NSPCB, please visit the Society's main web site http://coveredbridgesociety.org to learn about covered bridges, and how the society helps to preserve them.

You do not need to be a member of NSPCB to use this site, although membership provides access to more features. All visitors must register to gain access to the database, and must provide a valid email address. Click the 'Register' link above to start the process. If you encounter any problems getting registered, please click the 'Contact' link below and describe the problem you're having. We'll do our best to respond quickly and get the problem solved.

Our database consists of nearly 1000 authentic covered bridges in the US and Canada, cataloged by their World Guide Number (see the main site's Covered Bridge Facts to learn about WGNs), GPS coordinates and many other attributes of the bridge. As of September 2022, about 40% of the bridges also have photos, and we're adding more all the time.

Google Maps and driving directions are provided as part of this site. Users are advised to familiarize themselves with areas they intend to visit -- Google Maps may route you over unimproved roads, and roads in remote areas may not be passable all year long.

Some of the bridges in our database are privately owned. Please respect "Private Property" and "No Trespassing" signs. If in doubt, please ask locally.
