Gilkey Covered Bridge

WGN – 37-22-04 Gilkey Covered Bridge – Built in 1939 in Linn County by Linn County spanning Thomas Creek on Goar Rd., single span, 120 feet long, Howe trusses

There is some confusion about the Gilkey Bridge’s construction date. A plaque on the structure indicates 1939, but the Linn County engineer’s office has stated that a 1936 Albany Democrat-Herald article noted it was constructed that year.
