The Whites Bridge Historical Society

Welcome to the online information source for official information about rebuilding Whites Bridge and BRIDGEFEST!

The goal of the society is to not only rebuild Whites Covered Bridge, but to also preserve the history of the original structure and to provide financial support for maintenance and preservation of the new structure.

We are a diverse and motivated group of individuals ready to work hard and eager to see Whites Covered Bridge rebuilt.

Whites Bridge Historical Society Executive Board Members

Whites Bridge Historical Society (WBHS) is the only group that has agreements with the Fallasburg Historical Society, Keene Township, and the Ionia County Road Commission. WBHS is the group responsible for removing the remains of the bridge out of the Flat River, saving the county thousands of dollars. (WOOD TV8 coverage of the removal)
