Little Red Covered Bridge, Old Waverly Road (Mooresville Moments Series)

Today we reprise an installment of Mooresville Moments, a newspaper column written and edited by Wanda Potts, Indiana Room Librarian (1966-2002) at Mooresville Public Library. This installment (October 20, 1999), written by guest columnist and longtime Mooresville resident Lula Mae Bucker, examined the history of the "little red covered bridge" that once spanned the East Fork of White Lick Creek on the Old Waverly Road, where today the intersection of State Roads 144 and 67 is situated, just east of Mooresville, Indiana.


  1. I really enjoyed the article. My family and I were just out looking for the old Waverly bridge which I found out was destroyed in 1990. Is there any way to print that article for my dad. He doesn't get on the internet.

  2. Paula,

    Thanks for your interest in our blog about the old Waverly covered bridge (which was once outside Mooresville, Indiana) and other bridges spanning the White River at Waverly, Indiana. Since the "Mooresville Moments" columns are copyrighted, we designated them as such, which, I think, disables the printing and downloading functions from our DocStoc repository (

    I would be happy to email you a copy, free-of-charge, of the article, if you could send me an email at I can attach a digitized version (in JPEG or PDF formats) that you could then print from your computer.

    We have other blog entries about the Old Waverly Road covered bridge. In the blog's search bar above, type "Waverly bridge Mooresville Indiana," without the quotes, and you should retrieve several blog entries on the subject.

    Thank you again for your interest in our blog.

    Best Regards,
