Manasses Guth Bridge

The bridge that anchors the eastern end of South Whitehall Township's Covered Bridge Park is the Manasses Guth Bridge.  It joins the Wehr Covered Bridge as bookends to this unique park along Jordan Creek.  The 129 foot long single span Burr Truss Bridge was built in 1858.  The bridge, which is named after Manasses Guth who lived nearby, was rehabilitated in 2015 and reopened the following year.
