WAYNESBURG, PA – The sixth puzzle in the “Greene County Covered Bridges” puzzle series is now available from the Greene County Tourist Promotion Agency. The Shriver Covered Bridge puzzle marks the sixth release of the series of seven puzzles featuring images of Greene County’s historic covered bridges. The vibrantly colored puzzle features the A.B.A.T.E. motorcycle club riding through the bridge. Spanning Hargus Creek, the Shriver Covered Bridge is a queenpost truss bridge. Built in 1900, the bridge measures 40 feet in length and 14 feet in width. The Shriver Covered Bridge is owned by Greene County and remains open to vehicular traffic.
The latest puzzle joins the five previous releases in the series, although only four are still available in limited quantities. The Scott Covered Bridge, released in November 2007, features the snow-covered bridge in a winter scene. The King Covered Bridge, released in March 2008, features a fall scene with a vintage car passing through the bridge. The White Covered Bridge, released in October 2008, features a summer scene and Civil War re-enactors outside the bridge. The Cox Farm Covered Bridge, released in December 2008, is a sepia-toned puzzle depicting two sheep walking across the bridge with a farm scene in the background. The first puzzle, the Carmichaels Covered Bridge, was released in September 2007, but has since sold out.
The last puzzle in the series, featuring the Neddie Woods Covered Bridge, is scheduled to be released in July. It will feature a horse-drawn white wedding carriage on the bridge.
The puzzles cost $20 each and serve as a fundraiser for the Tourist Promotion Agency. Puzzles may be purchased at the agency’s office in the basement of the Greene County Airport in Waynesburg, or at the following locations in Waynesburg: AAA, The Frame Up & Gallery, Lippencott Alpacas, National City Bank, Rhodes & Hammers Printing, Inc., and Southwest Regional Medical Center’s gift shop.
