Kissing Bridges of Somerset County by Ron Bruner.

This 77-page book captures the charm of these romantic relics of a bygone era through more than 50 color and B&W photos. Long a favorite subject for photographers, artists, and poets, covered bridges (aka kissing bridges) hold a special place in Somerset County's history.

Step back in time as you read about a ghostly encounter, the challenges of getting a covered bridge built in the 1800s, and why they were dubbed "kissing bridges."

At one time Somerset County had more than 75 covered bridges. Learn where they were located, why they were covered, and how the Walter's Mill Covered Bridge was moved from its original location to the Somerset Historical Center.

Books can be purchased online click for details They will also be available in the Museum Shop at the Somerset Historical Center whenever they are able to reopen.

Ron Bruner a resident of Rockwood, PA is also a frequent photo contributor, advocate and friend of the Town Planner.
