Historic Huffman Mill Covered Bridge Prints
Numbered Huffman Mill Covered Bridge Prints by Jerry Baum Cost:   $35 Proceeds benefit Friends of Lincoln State Park
These numbered prints are quality reproductions of a painting by local artist, Jerry Baum, completed in 1999.   The painting depicts the historic covered bridge loacted at Huffman Mill, where Abraham Lincoln and his father, Thomas used to take grain to be ground. The bridge is located in scenic woods in eastern Spencer County.   It spans across the Anderson River into Perry County, Indiana.   Huffman Bridge, built during the Civil War around 1864, is on the State register of historical sites.   It's exact location is on County Road 1300, off of Highway 545 between New Boston and Fulda.
Legend has it that young Abraham Lincoln was returning from a trip to the Huffman Mill in 1830 when he would have been around 21 years old and just before the Lincoln family left Spencer County for Illinois. He stopped to let his oxen take a drink about 8 miles from his home. The story claims that the yoke of the oxen broke and fell into the water, making it impossible for Lincoln to finish the trip. Lincoln was forced to spend the night at a two-story cabin in the area in order for a new yoke to be fashioned the next morning. That cabin has been reassembled and preserved and is now located at Buffalo Run Grill & Gifts. It is thought that the cabin may have been an inn.
These beautiful prints were generously donated by the former Spencer County Arts Council which is no longer active.   They make an excellent gift and would look great framed and matted.   Each print measures approximately 15 1/2" tall by 27" wide.
