Bendo Bridge was originally built by John Davidson in 1860 in Livingston Manor. It was moved to its present location in 1913 and with the changes it has gone through, it does NOT qualify for the National Register of Historic Places.
It is located in the Town of Rockland on Conklin Hill Road, 2 miles west of County Route 84, 4 miles north of State Route 17. Located over Willowemoc Creek, it is a single span of 48 feet of Town truss.
Directions to the bridge:
From Exit 96 off State Route 17, go almost 6 miles east on County Route 82 to Debruce, then 2 miles right on Willowemoc Road, then right onto Covered Bridge Campsites and the bridge. During "season" this is a nice place to camp while enjoying visiting covered bridges for the entire weekend.
