Trusal Bridge

Trusal Bridge (also known as Dice’s Bridge) is the oldest of Indiana County’s covered bridges. At 41 feet the Trusal Bridge is the shortest of Indiana County’s covered bridges. It was named after Robert Trusal, a nearby property owner and Civil War veteran who owned the surrounding land at the time the bridge was built.
