Bigelow Covered Bridge

This historic bridge was built in 1873 and spans 114 feet of Little Darby Creek. The bridge was named in honor of Eliphas Bigelow, a nearby resident. In 1990 the bridge underwent an extensive renovation. Massive nail-laminated arches were seated into new concrete foundations. The arch system now carries the weight of traffic on this bridge.

Not The World’s Largest Pencil Sharpener Collection

Paid a visit Sunday to the largest Pencil Sharpener Collection I’ve ever seen but evidently not in the world. The collection is in a little building on the grounds of the Hocking Hills Visitor Center. I believe it contains over 3400 sharpeners but the World’s largest collection according to Guinness has 8,514. It is still an impressive amount for sure. It is free and open to the public so stop by and take a look.
