This watercolor painting of the Colemanville Covered Bridge is a 170-foot bridge built in 1856 over the Pequea River and is located southeast of Quarryville, PA, the hometown of Robert Fulton. Of the covered bridges still standing in Lancaster County, this bridge is the second longest. In 1980, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This Burr Archtruss bridge is also known as the Pequea #12 bridge and the Martic Forge Covered Bridge. In 1992, the bridge was restored. It was moved west a few feet and raised six feet to protect it from damage in potential future flooding. Note the attention spent by the artist on the framework inside the bridge and on the weathered boards on the exterior are very realistic. The detail work is extraordinary! The original painting, painted in 1987, is in a private collection in Michigan. Many Amish buggies can be seen around this area of southern Lancaster County. In 1987, the artist presented this print to Lancaster County Commissioner, James E. Huber. The print hangs in the Commissioners' Office in the Lancaster County Courthouse. This print is available as a limited edition and open edition.
