14 Hogback Bridge of Madison County over North River in Winterset, Iowa

The Bridges of Madison County are famous for the 1992 best-selling novel and then the movie three years later. Meryl Streep stared as the lonely Iowa housewife who has a four-day affair with Clint Eastwood as the traveling photographer. The third star was the Roseman Covered Bridge. The timber-truss span provided a scenic and romantic backdrop. It is one of only six remaining in Iowa. This is the Hogback Bridge. It was built over the North River in 1884.
