Iowa State Map with Seal


September 5, 2003 - Sad news again. Just learned that the Delta Covered Bridge in Keokuk County, Iowa was arsoned on Wednesday night about 8:30 p.m. Ironically or perhaps intentionally, the bridge was arsoned exactly to the day that the Cedar Bridge was arsoned in Madison County a year earlier.

For more info go to: You can view some photos of the burned bridge there.
