The Olin Covered Bridge, or Olin's Covered Bridge, is the one covered bridge in Ashtabula County, Ohio that is named for a local family that has owned property next to the bridge for close to two centuries. Built in 1873, the Olin Covered Bridge is a 115-foot-long Town truss designed covered bridge that spans over the Ashtabula River in Plymouth Township, just to the southeast of the City of Ashtabula. The covered bridge allows passage for a single lane of traffic and was renovated in 1985.
The Olin family still has a home near the covered bridge, and also maintains a covered bridge museum called Olin's Museum of Covered Bridges. The museum is open during the summer and fall and showcases the covered bridges in Ashtabula County. The Olin's Covered Bridge is also part of the Ashtabula County Covered Bridge Tour.
