The bridge has gone under two major reconstructions in 2011 and 2013 due to flood damage, the structure is again back to its orignal beauty. The one big change (not to my liking) has been painted red and did not remain its natural wood color. I do believe the purpose of painting the bridge is that they are using fire retardant paint on all Pa. covered bridges. Hillsgrove Covered Bridge  is located on Twp. Rt. 357 (Covered Bridge Road) Go north on Rt. 87, midway between Hillsgrove and Forksville in Elkland Twp, the br spans Loyalsock creek. It was built in 1850 using the Burr Arch design. The builder was Sadler Rogers. The structure is owned and maintained by the county. It is 163 feet long and 18 feet wide. This bridge is in excellent condition and is used daily by vehicle traffic.
