Covered Bridges are part of the rich historical heritage of Ashtabula County. Naomi Olin Bottorf devoted a great portion of her life to the preservation of Covered Bridges. In tribute to her goals and interests, Olin's Covered Bridge Museum was founded in 2003 by her family.
We are a non-profit organization. Our mission is to continue those goals by building public interest in the knowledge and preservation of covered bridges, and to share the broad variety of covered bridge items and informational materials that comprise the collection of Naomi Olin Bottorf.
