Established in 1896, the Warnke Bridge was built on the site of an older iron truss bridge that was damaged in the flood of 1895. Built by E. S. Sherman, the covered bridge was named after the Warnke family who lived nearby. Stones used on the site were brought from the Lewisburg quarries which lie about 9 miles (14.50 kilometers) from here. The Warnke Covered Bridge is located in the Preble County which is home to six other such bridges.
The names alone make you want to visit the Kinda Kooky Corn Maze, The Enchanted Goat Fort, Storybook Forest and Monster Mountain...among others, but Brumbaugh Fruit Farm offers much more relaxing and fun family entertainment.
