|The Sonestown Covered Bridge|
Built in 1850, the Sonestown Covered Bridge crosses over Muncy Creek just south of the town which it takes its name from. With a length of one hundred and ten feet, the bridge is also referred to as the Davidson Covered Bridge due to its location in Davidson Township. The bridge has a single span with a Burr Truss design. The Burr Truss was one of the earliest designs and was named after Theodore Burr who patented the design. The Burr Truss is the most common design used in covered bridges and is by far the most common design used in Pennsylvania’s covered bridges.
Over the years the bridge has undergone repairs from flood damage and overall it is in great condition. It rests on two stone abutments that have been reinforced with concrete to help protect it from future floods.
