Felton Covered Bridge

Built in 1892-93 and believed to be the tallest covered bridge in the country, it stood as the only entry to Felton for 45 years. In 1937 it was retired from active service to become a pedestrian bridge and figured prominently in many films of that period. After suffering damage in the winter storms of 1982, it was restored to its original elegance in 1987 using native materials and local talent.

Originally Registered May 17, 1957. Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with Monterey Viejo Chapter 1846 and Mountain Charlie Chapter 1850 of E Clampus Vitus & the County of Santa Cruz, October 10, 1987.
