Welcome to the OHBA 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.
