Olin's Museum of Covered Bridges
First Annual Covered Bridge Swap Meet
Saturday, June 24, 2006
This year Olin's Museum of Covered Bridges will kick off the summer with a new event that we hope will be useful to covered bridge collectors as well as provide a fun day of sharing and fellowship for our wide spread "covered bridge family." So get out your bridges and dust off your doubles.
Olin's Museum of Covered Bridges invites you to take a walk through America's covered bridges. While visiting the museum, you will learn about covered bridges of the past as well as the present. Enjoy art, artifacts, and educational displays. You will also see the many fun and unique covered bridge items on display that comprise the collection of the late Naomi Olin Bottorf.
Our informational tour is an excellent introduction to the history and basics of covered bridges for people of all ages. Whether you are new to the covered bridge scene or a seasoned bridge buff, Olin's Museum will prove to be a worthwhile stop on your drive through the bridges of Ashtabula County.
If you are a post card collector, be sure to check out our large collection of vintage post cards on display. The museum gift shop features covered bridge collectibles including t-shirts, mugs, post cards and hand sketched Christmas ornaments.
Located within walking distance just east of Olin's covered bridge on Dewey Road, the museum is owned and operated by members of the Olin family.
If you are in the area and would like a tour during off hours, be sure to call anyone of the curators listed to see if they can accommodate you at the time of your arrival. Groups welcome.
