According to its website, the Grand River Manor has a patio that overlooks the Mechanicsville Road Covered Bridge.  The website encourages visitors to grab one of their delicious ½ pound burgers or an order of their  famous jumbo wings.  If we hadn’t already had lunch, we would have eaten here. We will keep the restaurant in mind for our next visit to Ashtabula County!

The steel bridge was added in 1913, when a flood washed away the land on the north end.

There is an Ashtabula County MetroPark at the north end of the Harpersfield Road Covered Bridge.

The toll-keeper booth is to remind visitors of pioneer days, when travelers often had to pay for the privilege of crossing a bridge.  The toll-keeper booth serves as a visitor information center.
