Ebenezer Church Bridge



One of the two covered bridges that are featured inside the grounds of Mingo Creek County Park, the Ebenezer Church Bridge did not always cross Mingo Creek.  The bridge used to cross Maple Creek in Ginger Hill but was moved to the County Park in 1977.  The Ebenezer and the Henry Bridge - the other bridge that is located within the park - are one of eight covered bridges in Washington and Greene Counties as part of the Covered Bridge Festival that is held every September.
The bridge was originally located at nearby Ginger Hill where it crossed the South Fork of Maple Creek.  The bridge was dismantled in 1975 before moving to its current home in 1977.
