The State Sanatorium Covered Bridge is a single-span Kingpost Truss Burr Arch structure with a span length of 154 feet. It was constructed in 1913 by Joseph A. Britton. The bridge is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the Indiana Register of Historic Sites and Structures. The structure was originally located nearly one mile downstream. A decision was made that the structure would be rehabilitated and relocated to this site. Prior to the moving of the State Sanatorium Covered Bridge, this site was the location of two other covered bridges. The Adams Bridge was destroyed by flood in 1969. The Jessup Bridge was blown off its abutments during high winds in 1989. The State Sanatorium Covered Bridge was rehabilitated and moved to this new location.
