A Trip to Branch’s Ceramics

June 10, 2021

We don’t yet have 220 electricity in our Victorian house, so can’t quite power the kiln. Needed to fire some Greenman tiles. Upcoming Art Fest!

Smolen-Gulf Bridge

The Smolen–Gulf Bridge is a covered bridge which carries State Road (Ashtabula County Road 25) across the Ashtabula River at the Plymouth and Ashtabula Township line in northern Ashtabula County, Ohio, United States. At 613 feet (182.9 meters), it is the longest covered bridge in the United States – a title formerly held by the Cornish–Windsor Covered Bridge in New Hampshire – and the fourth longest covered bridge in the world. The bridge, one of 17 drive-able covered bridges in the county, was designed by John Smolen, former Ashtabula County Engineer when the idea of bridging the Ashtabula River Gulf with a wooden structure was first conceived in 1995.

Riverview Bridge

The Riverview Covered Pedestrian Bridge is a wooden Pratt truss covered bridge built beneath the Smolen-Gulf Bridge, completed in 2016. The new pedestrian covered bridge is 150 feet (46 m) long and 14 feet (4.3 m) wide. It is a Pratt truss design, like the Smolen-Gulf Bridge, and was designed by Smolen Engineering. It sits below Smolen Bridge in Indian Trails Park. It was dedicated on October 4, 2016. Wikipedia
