From an article in the Baltimore Sunpapers on October 17, 1937 about Maryland's Covered Bridges, the writer describes the Winters Run Covered Bridge:
There are even a few (covered bridges) that have roof alone, and are otherwise unenclosed, and in the group was included one of Maryland's loveliest; now replaced. It was a small bridge, as bridges go, across Winters Run on the Philadelphia Road. Covered only with a shingled roof, its graceful arch and geometrical braces stood here in a pattern of striking beauty.
