Welcome to the Ohio Historic Bridge Association website
The Ohio Historic Bridge Association (OHBA) was formed in 1960 as the Southern Ohio Covered Bridge Association specifically to preserve an abandoned covered bridge in Muskingum County, Ohio. In more recent years, it became apparent that many old metal, masonry, and concrete bridges were also disappearing and that some historic bridges of all kinds are worth preserving to help future generations appreciate the value of our bridge heritage. The OHBA invites you to join and to help preserve our heritage and become more informed about historic bridges.
David Simmons, President OHBA.
The mission of the OHBA, a nonprofit organization, is to promote the study of historic bridges and bring together persons interested in learning about, protecting and promoting the historic bridges of Ohio. We strive to foster an understanding and appreciation of these structures and their connection to our past and to support efforts of bridge preservation and rehabilitation.
OHBA is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in the State of Ohio and is recognized as a non-profit organization under 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
