Bridges of Madison County … The Granddaddy

Today’s post features the “Grandaddy” of Madison County’s (Iowa) covered bridges, the Roseman covered bridge. The Roseman bridge was built by Benton Jones in 1883. It is 107 feet long and stands in the same location it was built, just a few short miles outside Winterset, Iowa. The Roseman bridge is the best known of all six Madison County covered bridges, and played a prominent role in both the book and the film version of “The Bridges of Madison County”. It was renovated in 1992 at a cost of $152,515.

Here are 3 of my favorite HDR images of the Roseman covered bridge:
