Backstory and Context
The Richland-Plummer Creek Covered Bridge, or also known simply as the covered bridge, was built in 1883 just outside of Bloomfield, Indiana. It is also known as County Bridge #86, but it's definitely number one in my heart and on the charts. It was built by AM Kennedy and Sons construction company, who was also responsible for some of the other older buildings in the surrounding area. The bridge is still in use, and has been kept in great condition. It isn't on a main road, so it doesn't get very much use these days, but that just helps keep her in prime condition.
