The Volant Bridge, a covered span built about 1891, carried Main Street in downtown Volant over the Neshannock Creek. The covered bridge, and another smaller one nearby across the millrace of Volant Mills, was torn down and removed in early 1932. A temporary bridge was erected nearby while construction of a modern span commenced in May 1932 and opened for traffic later the year. (c1905) (Courtesy of Todd Clark Collection) Full Size
The smaller covered bridge, over the raceway of the mill, is clearly seen behind the boy. The covered bridge over the Neshannock Creek is in background and marked by the black arrow. (c1907)
