Lowell, MI – The 2019 calendar by the National Society for the Preservation of Covered Bridges features covered bridges from 13 different states; from East to West coasts and their builders.

Locally, the #Fallasburg Covered Bridge adorns the month of May.

According to the statement on the calendar, the Fallasburg Covered Bridge was built in 1871 by Jared Brasee. Brasee lived in Ada. Brasee used for the construction of his bridges the Brown truss. Fallasburg is the only remaining Brown truss bridge.

The White’s Bridge (1869-2013) was in Ionia County. The White’s Bridge Historical Society is in the process of rebuilding the bridge that burnt in 2013.
