Fish Creek Covered Bridge

-A A +A
c. 1880. Wetzel County 13 over Fish Creek, .1 mile southwest of the intersection with U.S. 250 at the southern outskirts of Hundred

This small covered bridge, still in regular use, has vertically sided walls and an open space for ventilation between them and the tin-covered gable roof. It has massive sandstone block foundations at both ends. The small community of Hundred was named for Henry Church, also known as “Old Hundred,” who lived to be 109 years old. He was 102 and had already acquired his nickname when B&O officials named the depot after him.
