The West Montrose Covered Bridge was designed in 1880 by John Bear and built a year later by John and his brother Benjamin. The 198 foot bridge was covered to protect the flooring and frame against the elements. Dubbed as the Kissing Bridge, it later came under the jurisdiction of Waterloo County. In 1937, the Ontario government assumed responsibility of the Guelph-Elmira Road and the West Montrose Covered Bridge. The floor and sub-structure were rebuilt and reinforced. This bridge is Ontario’s only remaining covered bridge. My Nikon D50 and 18-55mm DX lens captured this historic bridge.

To further specify where West Montrose is, it’s between Elmira and Guelph ON in CANADA

    WOWRon that is amazing, I have never seen a bridge like this before. Your information about it is very interesting. I do hope it is preserved for ever!!! Great capture Sir Ron XXX

  • Thank you dear Janine. This is a rare breed for my province, though other places, namely some states in the U.S are known for them; and eastern Canada too I believe. Regarding the info, it was necessary to include to submit for the Canadian Historical Group. Hugs & XXX, Ron

    Fine shot… I’ve seen pictures of this bridge & have never fully understood where it is located. Until now; thanks. Will have to visit it soon.

  • Thank you Sheila. This is a fair drive from the Buffalo area. Would be wise to see it soon before the days get too short and the snow begins falling…or wait til Spring. Best wishes, Ron
