After being closed for more than six years, the Hall’s Mill Covered Bridge on Hopewell Township Route 528 just east of Yellow Creek was reopened for pedestrian traffic on June 11 at a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The Hall’s Mill Covered Bridge is the second to be restored in Bedford County since 1988 when the Bedford County Covered Bridge Society formed and coordinated efforts to preserve the county’s remaining covered bridges. Hall’s Mill is the first covered bridge restoration to be fully funded by the state. The cost was $518,000.
