Baker's Camp Covered Bridge

Baker's Camp Covered Bridge, also known as Hillis Bridge, is a covered bridge in northern Putnam County, Indiana, east of the town of Bainbridge. It carries County Road E 650 north over Big Walnut Creek, about 1.25 miles (2 km) south of the road's intersection with U.S. 36.[1]

Built in 1901 by J. J. Daniels, the bridge is 128 feet (39 m) long, 14 feet (4.3 m) wide, and 13 feet (4.0 m) high.[2] It is an example of the Burr arch truss design.
