The Covered Bridge

In 1972, the historic Wiswell Road Covered Bridge was deemed unsafe for vehicle traffic. Rather than destroy it and replace it with another structure, the County Highway Department elected to re-route the road and save the bridge. As a result of fund raising efforts by 4-H members and others in Northeast Ohio and a historic grant from the State of Ohio, the bridge was restored with a new roof, new siding and necessary support structures in 1979. 


American Camp Association

In 1976 4-H Camp Whitewood received accreditation by the American Camp Association. This committed the camp facilities and staff to meet the requirements of the American Camping Association and was a positive move toward using the facilities for both Extension and non-Extension purposes.
