On Tuesday, September 29th, 2015, the Bob White Covered Bridge in Woolwine, Virginia was washed away during torrential mountain flooding. Both a Virginia and National Historic Landmark, the 80 foot long bridge was constructed in 1921 and has served the community ever since. It played host to the annual Virginia Covered Bridge Festival, along with its sister bridge, Jack's Creek Covered Bridge (also in Woolwine).
Due to exorbitant costs and fees, the reconstruction of the bridge will require a commitment from the County, from the Covered Bridge Committee and from YOU.
We are asking that you donate any amount possible to rebuild this beautiful, historic structure, one of only 8 remaining covered bridges in Virginia. The bridge will be rebuilt with timber cut to match the original design and lumber. Original boards from the bridge still remain and will be made into a beautiful replica and historical kiosk to be found on site.
Every portion of your donation will go directly to the Patrick County Covered Bridge Committee, a registered 501c3. Proceeds will go directly to costs of design and construction.
We thank you for your time and donation. Through your efforts, the Bob White Covered Bridge will once again span the beautiful Smith River in historic Patrick County, Virginia.
