Kreidersville bridge has got to be one of the best maintained bridges in the state. The bridge is usually adorned with flowers at one end, this end has an entry way lined with bricks. The bridge has a bench barrier which stops any traffic except by foot. The landscaping around the bridge does it justice.. On one side of the bridge there is a gazebo where you can sit and just take in the beauty of the surroundings...This is a must see bridge. The structure was built in 1839 with a Burr truss, it owned and maintained by the county. The bridge crosses Hokendauqua Creek, the length is 96 ft. and the width is 18 ft...The location of the bridge is on Township Route 473, just east of Kreidersville Road, in Kreidersville, Allen Township. This is the only remaining covered bridge in Northampton County and is also one of the oldest remaining covered bridges in the state. The bridge is in excellent condition and a true historical structure that our state can be very proud of.
